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.
