View of the fabrica under excavation

The view shows one end of an aisled hall under excavation in Trichay Street in 1972. The large square pits in two rows, some with post-holes within, are the post-pits of an aisled hall. Within the hall, various smaller features include shallow troughs and many post-holes. The hall was clearly one end of a large building in which metal-working was taking place in the fortress. It can be identified with some confidence as the fabrica (legionary workshop).
