    We spent a very pleasant weekend in the Costswolds last month and during our stay I managed to get a look around Cirencester and the remains of the Roman town together with the interesting finds housed in the Corinium Museum.

    Thanks for that JJ – really interesting report. It feels (and looks) like the town is taking a far more organised approach to celebrating its Roman past than when I was there in the 80s. Good to know – I may take a trip over sometime soon.

    (PS – What’s it worth not to tell the people of Newport that you think Caerleon is near Cardiff?)

    Hi Guy, thanks for your comment. I hope the post will encourage others to visit a really interesting town and a delightful museum where the staff were really friendly and welcoming.

    I don’t know if I want to engage with the sensitivity of Welsh towns one to another as it’s bad enough dealing with the rivalry between Exeter and Plymouth in my neck of the woods.

    I suppose in my defence I would say that our trip to Caerleon coincided with a two day stay-over in Cardiff which is why I think of its geographical proximity in that way and I have Newport blood flowing in my veins as my maternal Grandmother hailed from the town

    Cheers
