    Summary (English)

    • During this campaign, excavations continued in the workshops/shops accessible from rooms 1 and 3 and the preliminary cleaning continued of the stratigraphy preserved in the workshops/shops accessible from street numbers 10 and 11. The remains of a production installation were identified in the area accessible from street number 1, which date to a period preceding the construction of the workshops/shops. The structures, most of which still covered, will be investigated in 2020. In the rooms accessible from street number 3, work continued in the room facing onto via dell’Abbondanza (northern part of room 3.1), resulting in a more precise definition of the chronology and changes in use of a series of artificial cavities and structures built of mud brick and timber, which are currently being studied. The investigation in this area was then suspended for safety reasons and the preliminary cleaning of the stratigraphy preserved in the adjacent room 3.2 took place. Most of the original floor was preserved in the northern part of the room, constituted by an opus signinum surface overlying a make-up of building rubble containing abundant wall plaster fragments. In the southern part of the room, there was a large cut in the floor, probably made during the 19th century excavations and later, more recently, deepened for the positioning of electricity cables. Below the modern fill in these cuts were the remains of walls and several patches of stratigraphy, which will be investigated during coming campaigns. The modern fill was also removed from the area of a small room 3.3 in which the original floor was almost completely preserved.
