Monument record MYO4220 - Warehouses and riverside structures

Summary

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.
