Sea Mills (Abona) Roman Building

Roman Houses

Roman Building at Sea Mills. Lying at the junction of Roman Way with the Portway, this was possibly a workshop or an office in the Roman town of Abonae. It was probably constructed during the AD 200s.

Excavations were undertaken by Selley (Alfred Jowett Selley (1854–1945)) adjacent to the Portway in 1934. They uncovered a small building with several rooms that may have been arranged around a small courtyard. It has been interpreted as workshops. The remains were consolidated and are now exposed.
