Underbart intressant museum för både stora och små. Den permanenta utställningen ger en fantastisk pedagogisk insikt i hur livet utvecklats med ett lokalt fokus, samtidigt som det ger kunskap om utvecklingen från istiden tills nu för människan. Rekommenderas.

Roligt att se vad som hänt i bygden och hur den vuxit upp. Hur det började och har utvecklats.

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.
