Roman timber lined wells in the City of London: further examples

Tony Wilmott

This paper reports on six wells found on various sites in the City, supplementing the author’s previous papers on Roman wells and the water supply. The wells were either of jointed box-frame construction, or were lined with barrels. One well yielded a lead alloy flagon (now in the British Museum). Several of the barrel staves bore stamps: in one case, Q VET[TI] CATULLI (“of Quintus Vettius Catullus”) had been stamped twice, salterwise across the vent hole.
