The Corinium Museum holds some of the treasures
of the Cotswolds. Here you can come face to face with:
The Romans - Corinium was the second
largest city in Roman Britain, population c. 15, 000. Here you can experience
life as a Roman, see mosaics, explore their engineering and artistry and
children can dress as a Roman soldier.
The Saxons - Take a look at the along-saxons
from Butlers Field in nearby Lechlade. Ancestors have been brought to life with
the use of forensically re-constructed heads.
Iron age to the English Civil War - can
be traced with the story of ware, wool, royalty, dissolved monasteries and the
rise from rags to riches of some of the local wealthy.
18th and 19th Century Cirencester is
recreated through a computer database and a collection of historic photographs.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick
Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be
added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has
been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather
than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to
create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far
Please let us know any other information that we
can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always
wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be
correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of
course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have
any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page
then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you
quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the

Please submit information on locations you discover so
that this system continues to grow.
