  1. A rich history

    The Romans set up a fort at Cardiff nearly two thousand years ago but most of the remains are now buried beneath the impressive Cardiff Castle. This imposing stronghold was built in the 11th century and is now one of the premier historical attractions in Cardiff.

A trip to this impressive museum reveals an educational and engaging historical attraction.
