Monument record MYO4220 - Warehouses and riverside structures


Evidence of Roman buildings on Coney Street, possibly storage sheds or warehouses directly linked with the provisioning of the garrison, was discovered during excavations in 1974-75 in the cellars of 39-41 Coney Street. However, these buildings differ in sizing from standard military warehouse buildings. They may have been erected not by the military but by civilian builders working for a private enterprise dealing in supplies for the legion. Demolished or dismantled in the 2nd century. The riverside structures are later in date and may represent a wharf or landing place.
