A litte bit of an archeologcal jumble. There are walls, and bits of pillar and statue, all set in a small park. Could do with better interpretation.

Pieces of history, how great a roman city was.

This is another addition to the history and heritage of this city. This archeological garden of Cybèle is an "open museum" with beautiful setting of timeless landscapes. Most intriguing is the portico still standing which may have been part of a Roman thermal bath? Or perhaps a wall of a Roman theatre? Beautiful setting attributed to the Galo-Roman history of this beautiful city of Vienne. There's benches here and dog friendly (as long as it's on a leash and clean up its business after), and definitely kids would love exploring this ruin (supervised of course). Worth exploring.

Aberlemno Sculptured Stones

The Aberlemno Sculptured Stones are a series of five Class I and II Early Medieval standing stones found in and around the village of Aberlemno. The stones with Pictish carvings variously date between about AD 500 and 800.

Aberlemno 1, 3 and 5 are located in recesses in the dry stone wall at the side of the road in Aberlemno. Aberlemno 2 is found in the Kirkyard, 300 yards south of the roadside stones. In recent years, bids have been made to move the stones to an indoor location to protect them from weathering, but this has met with local resistance and the stones are currently covered in the winter.

Aberlemno 4, the Flemington Farm Stone was found 30 yards from the church, and is now on display in the McManus Galleries, Dundee.
