During archaeological excavations at Rua da Prata 221-231 and Rua dos Correeiros 158-168, in Lisbon, in the years of 2015 and 2016, a diverse set of contexts were unearthed closely associated with the long occupational lifespan of this area of the city. We aim to highlight the remains of urbanism from 16th and 17th centuries and the assemblages of pottery and fauna related to the daily activities and shops that spread over this area during the 14th and 15th centuries. As such, we present a case study for the evolution of Lisbon’s urbanism from late Medieval to late Modern age. We consider that the information extracted from the pottery sherds, faunal remains and architectural remains might contribute to a better understanding of the history and development of this area of the city.
