Tea-time talk: Roman Sea Mills

Join us for a short tea-time talk on the Romans at Sea Mills.

Bristol Museums look after an amazing collection of Romano-British material from the small Roman town of ‘Abonae’, now the site of Sea Mills in Bristol. Artefacts have been acquired over 100 years and come from a range of antiquarian investigations, archaeological excavations and one-off finds.

Find out what these collections can tell us about Sea Mills and ‘Abonae’.

This tea-time talk is part of the Festival of Archaeology, the UK’s biggest celebration of archaeology.

Speaker: Gail Boyle has been a museum archaeologist for over 35 years and is Senior Curator of Archaeology and World Cultures for Bristol Museums. Gail sits on several UK heritage and museum related bodies, including the DCMS Treasure Valuation Committee and the Portable Antiquities Advisory Group.
