The Romans subjugated great areas of Britain, Wales, and Scotland as portions of the Roman Empire. In the southern region of Wales, the Romans established a town and a garrison. To entertain the troops, Caerleon Amphitheater was built. This site, as many on these immediate pages, is an easy drive from Cardiff.
