Roman Amphitheatre

​Founded by the Romans in AD50, the ancient port of Londinium grew to become a thriving city bustling with traders and peoples from all corners of the empire. The capital of Britannia and located in what is today the City of London, the settlement was the largest these isles would see for over a thousand years. Invading armies, fires, the Blitz and collapsed buildings have long since covered over the mighty civilisation that once was, but peak through the cracks in the pavement, and you'll be transported back two millennia to the Roman world beneath your feet.
