In the historic center of the town of Brindisi, during the renovation of Palazzo Guerrieri, an eighteenth century building, located a few hundred meters from the quay of the inner harbour, archaeological investigations were conducted within the complex on several occasions between 2001 and 2010. These revealed traces of Roman and Medieval urban settlement. Below the modern layers were found structures in opus mixtum of a Roman building dated from the early imperial period; they consist of walls delimiting rooms with vaulted ceilings and arched openings in brick, with a few traces of cocciopesto flooring collapsed from an upper storey. These structures are partially integrated into the body of a medieval building of which there were found rectangular rooms arranged around an open space, and an area for productive activities, documented by the presence of a small furnace and surfaces with traces of combustion. In the layers related to this phase fragments of pottery dating from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century were found.
