Chester Roman Amphitheatre



Chester Roman Amphitheatre is the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain and its excavation is still in progress. Based at the Roman fort of Deva, the Amphitheatre served as an entertainment centre and training ground for the troops of the 20th Legion stationed at the fort.

The amphitheatre was built around 86 AD, and could hold an estimated 7,000 spectators. Beside the amphitheatre stands a shrine to Nemesis, Roman godess of vengeance. The altar is a replica; the original is preserved at the Grosvenor Museum.
