The Roman Walls of Cardiff Castle

When you first look at Cardiff Castle, you may notice what looks like poor construction work or perhaps badly patched holes in its outer walls. However, these well-worn areas are actually Roman ruins, and it’s easy to walk right past them without even noticing these traces of the castle’s long history.

For more than 2,000 years, a fortress has stood in one form or another in the city of Cardiff, Wales. The Romans founded a fort on the spot around 50 AD. They used the site up until it was abandoned sometime during the fourth century.
