Calleva Roman Museum Museums
Calleva Roman Museum provides background information for the site visit to the Roman town walls and amphitheatre. In the centre lay the Forum and Basilica. The Forum court was surrounded on the north, east and south sides by a continuous row of shops and offices, flanked inside and out by porticos of Bath-stone Tuscan columns; the main entrance was in the centre of the east side. Across the west side of the Forum court lay the Basilica. Fragments of marble from Purbeck and Italy were found in rubble layers, indicating a fine finish to the building.
