History of Cirencester
Favorite thing: Cirencester’s recorded history began when the Romans invaded England in 43 AD, the local Celtic tribe, the Dobunni offered little resistance. The Romans however, still built a fort on the site of Cirencester and it is thought that up to 800 cavalrymen and their logistical support were housed here. Soon a civilian settlement followed and provided a ready market for the soldiers in the fort. The Roman fort was dismantled around 75 AD.

Favorite thing: Near to the odd sculpture, this replica mosaic in modern materials represents the design of a hare on the 4th century AD mosaic from Corinium, Roman Cirencester, which is now displayed in the Corinium Museum in Park Street.
Favorite thing: This sculpture stands in the square next to the Brewery Arts centre - I like it, but haven't got a clue what it's supposed to represent!
