    History of Cirencester

    by grayfo Written Oct 29, 2014

    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.

    Mosaic

    by illumina Written Jan 24, 2010

    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.

    Odd Sculpture

    by illumina Written Dec 13, 2008

    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!
