Roman Amphitheatre at Cirencester

The Roman Amphitheatre at Cirencester dates from the early second century AD. The amphitheatre was constructed on the site of an existing Roman quarry. The amphitheatre once offered seating for more than 8,000 people which was more than the number of inhabitants of nearby Corinium (present day Cirencester).
