Gdje da bacamo smeće? Što ako imamo malo veće smeće nego što stane u kantu? Ovi sakupljači ne uzimaju ništa što stavimo pored kante a ovi iz Herculanee neznaju di se baca. Vratite nam normalne kante.

A local firm for communal services and waste removal, You can't get an answer on the phone,because they simply don't respond, I guess due to "hard" office work. You can do better Herculanea !!!!

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.
