Not so much one can do while sitting in church, I fix my gaze on the pulpit and try to understand the one who painted the wall against the pulpit

Not so much one can do while sitting in church, I fix my gaze on the pulpit and try to understand the one who painted the wall against the pulpit ? either used sweeping brushes or was he visually impaired? He had not heard of masking tape in weather cases. Getting a little worried when not using professionals on a historic building. !!!!!

A little sad sight as the church is run down and not renovated.

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.
