The Romans Return

Cardiff CAstleCardiff Castles is perhaps best known as being the lavish home of the Marquess of Bute in the 19th century. However the castles history goes back much further than that.

The first signs of a fort on the site came over 2000 years ago when it was fist built as a Roman stronghold.

And now the Romans Return to celebrate the castle's link with this time.  Over 2 days from 19-20 May the castle will be the scene for vivid flashbacks to a time when the site was a Roman Fort teeming with soldiers and civilians.

This great family event will give you a chance to see and hear how the Romans invaded and conquered Cardiff in a series of dramatic military displays and drills by soldiers in full, authentic costume.

A living history encampment will demonstrate how people lived during this time.

More information is available on the Cardiff Castle website.
