Roman Legionary Museum
Almost 2,000 years ago, the Roman Empire dominated the civilised world. Wales was the furthest outposts and, in AD75, a fortress was founded at Caerleon that would guard the region for over 200 years.
Today at the Roman Legionary Museum Caerleon, you can learn what made the Romans such a formidable force and how life today would not be the same without them!
You'll see how they lived, slept and ate how they marched and prepared for battle which gods they worshipped and which gemstones they wore and valued.
Visit during the school holidays and step back in time into a full size barrack room, try on a replica suit of armour and take part in the day to day activities of a Roman soldier.
You can also visit the only remains of a Roman legionary barracks on view elsewhere in Europe found close to the museum and the nearby Amphitheatre where spectators would have watched galadiators battle to death
