Welsh History Month: Rising from the ruins, Cadw rebuilds Roman Fort

Recommended Posts

It takes something special to make Caernarfon Castle look small. But now, if you visit Cadw’s website, you can see for yourself how a much larger building dominated this part of North Wales almost 2,000 years ago. Only the footings of some of the walls remain to show where Segontium Roman Fort once stood, but the building has risen again through digital technology. The computer-generated video starts at sea level to show how this massive building towered over the site of the present town, covering four times the area of the famous castle. We then zoom in and explore the site itself, with 3D-model Roman characters giving an impression of its scale.
