Remains of Roman Dwelling at Portus Abonae (Sea Mills)
Remains of Roman Dwelling at Portus Abonae (Sea Mills)
Portus Abonae was an ancient Roman Settlement at Sea Mills, where the Roman army would await embarkation for Caerleon, Wales. The photo is apparently of remains of dwellings which formed part of a military fort in Claudian times. It is taken between Roman Way and the Portway, facing due South. Most commuters speeding down the Portway would never know it was there!
