Explore the site of an extensive Roman town
Calleva Atrebatum, Roman Silchester, thrived nearly 2,000 years ago. It was at the junction of significant Roman roads, but after the Romans left the location was abandoned..
Much remains hidden today, but the site is clearly marked on the ground and we can walk around some of the walls and imagine the atmosphere in the amphitheatre.
If we are lucky, during the summer, we can watch archaeologists as they dig for clues, and talk to some of them about past and present finds.
