St. Lawrence's Church

Zudar, Germany

St. Lawrence's Church in Zudar was built from the middle of the 13th century and was once a popular place of pilgrimage. That changed in 1372 when a ship sank on its way to the church and all the people aboard perished. The altar screen from the Stralsund workshop of Hans Broder (dated 1707) consists of different architecturally framed paintings. Its main painting dates back to 1726. The pulpit (1765) is of late-Baroque style.

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.
