Vine Street Villa

The early stone phase of the Vine Street townhouse replaced timber buildings on the site in the mid to late 2nd century AD. Over time, the townhouse grew bigger and grander, until it was a four-winged house set around an open central courtyard and associated buildings. Mosaic floors and painted walls found by archaeologists show us that the residents of this townhouse were very wealthy.

Eventually, the property declined. It stopped being a residence and was split into workshops, until the building seems to have finally been abandoned in the very late 4th or, perhaps, early 5th century.
