Caerleon and The National Roman Legion Museum

Caerleon was one of only three permanent fortresses in Roman Britain and the farthest outpost of the Roman Empire. The museum lies inside what remains of the fortress, which includes the most complete amphitheatre in Britain and the only remains of a Roman Legionary barracks on view anywhere in Europe. At the National Roman Legion Museum you can learn what made the Romans a formidable force and how they shaped the modern world. You’ll be able to see a large collection of objects that show how they lived, fought, worshipped and died.
