The Raspberry and Chocolate cake has attracted a pair of dragons from the castle well
As we were on the other side of the Severn , we decided to head down to Caerleon and take a look at the Roman remains there as Robin is starting the Romans as a project at school (having done the Anglo-Saxons and the Egyptians, who needs chronology?).
The amphitheatre is very impressive, but for me not the highlight of the trip. I don't profess to detect psychic auras or similar, but very few places give me the abdabs like this one (it was the same when I visited about 12 years ago). I really find the idea of gladiatoral combat and the Roman games completely sickening.
Anyhow the lads had no such qualms and charged in with a will. I took a few shots for the school work
Next we had a look at the barracks, where Robin gleefully demostrated the site of the latrines
Then on to the museum, which was really good, and free to get in on a Sunday!
It would be nice to see some second or third century reproductions for a change (or even better 4th or 5th!)
Anyhow time for a quick look in the bohemian Arthurian yard at the South Gate of Caerleon
Merlin and Arthur (Thing 2)
and back in time to assemble the Harry Potter lego that Robin got for his birthday. What fun.
