  Gaius Wuz Here?

To explore Chester is to walk through the millenia. To start, check out the ruins of the Roman Ampitheater, located to the immediate southeast of the city center between the walls and the river.

The Roman colony here, on the furthest reaches of the empire, was called Deva. Archaeological restoration has produced a remarkably well-preserved amphiteatre and other ruins of the nearly 2000-year old city. Awesome.
