Dewa Roman Experience occupies a unique site at the heart of the original legionary fortress. In 1991 archaeologists discovered remains of the fortress on this site and the excavations have been left open for public viewing.

The award winning Dewa Roman Experience is a family run attraction suitable for both members of the public and privately booked groups. Since 1993 visitors of all ages have enjoyed wandering through Roman Streets, exploring the archaeological remains and handling ancient relics in our hands-on studio.
