Wroxeter Roman City

Nr Shrewsbury

Visiting the museum at Wroxeter gives a good insight into what life was like in a big Roman city. The museum tracks life from before the Romans arrived through to what happened after they left.

An audio tour augments the experience and goes beyond consideration of Roman building skills to touch on things like the the health and beauty routines of the 5,000 plus military and civilian residents of what was the fourth largest city in Roman Britain.

Much of the city remains unexcavated but one corner reveals its secrets. That is the baths, including the massive remains of part of the Basilica wall, which were a vital part of the social lives of the citizens of Wroxeter.
