Roman Verulamium

Yesterday, I visited Verulamium in St Albans. Verulamium was a Roman town and now has a museum on site, showing the remains from the town, including the ruins of an amphitheatre. It's a pretty cool place.

Here you can see the amphitheatre. The column is a reproduction in the place of one of the three originals. 
 This huge mosaic was discovered in a town house on the site. 
 Roman skull. I love a skeleton or two! 
 St Albans is beautiful! 
I couldn't resist taking a photo of the pretty traffic on my way home. 


  1. Ah it's so strange seeing my hometown on someone's blog, I remember going to these places and the museum on school trips.

    1. Haha I bet it was cool for you living so close!

  2. The mosaics are lovely - it's so fun with a day trip somewhere, thank you for sharing :o). Xx

  3. Oh this looks amazing. They have a massive section on roman in the National Museum Of Scotland. It's so cool! It's so interesting to see how much things have changed and even more interesting to see the things that are still the same.

  4. (i promise i'm not stalking your blog to have seen this (ok im at work and bored and like to read as much of a blog as possible when i discover a new one)) but it made me realise that I havent been to verulamium museums for probably 15 years despite having grown up 5 miles away, spent most of my youth in the parks by the abbey and having worked in St Albans for 5 years.

    Im moving back this month, I may make it a mission!
