"I was once a Roman military hospital - now this has long gone, buried by layer upon layer of all the houses and buildings and ruins of century after century.”
The Wall at Dewa Roman Experience
For more than three centuries, from about 79 AD, Chester was one of the most important military bases and trading posts in the Roman Empire. Dewa Roman Experience occupies a unique site at the heart of the original Roman fortress, home to the “brave and victorious” Twentieth Legion. It offers a reconstructed granary, barracks, bath-house, taverna and market stalls as well as a rare opportunity to view the Roman, Saxon and medieval remains buried beneath Chester.
