Calleva Atrebatum

Calleva Atrebatum

A group of modern day gladiators took to the sands of the arena on their trip to what is today's Silchester, the old Roman town of Calleva Atrebatum. The impressive walls were walked, town life discussed, archaeological techniques such as geophysics and LiDAR casually brought into conversation and all ended up in the amphitheatre for some appropriate gladiatorial entertainment. A fun and educational morning all round.
