Hejls Cemetery is always a pleasure to come by, as Tom is digging the cemetery so well. Tom is welcoming and a great help when we come up with headstones to be set up Greet your skilled stone carver Kolding Stoneware

My hometown church, where I am both baptized and confirmed. My parents and a large part of the family are buried there, as well as many others from my hometown. I really like that place.

Beautiful church with beautiful cemetery. Looks rather like a garden, in Czech republic we are used to something else. But this kind of Graves Is much more pretty.

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
