Chester Amphitheatre

Chester Roman Amphitheatre is the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain. It is used for entertainment and military training by the 20th Legion. Excavations by English Heritage and Chester city council revealed two successive stone-built amphitheatres with wooden seating in 2004-5. The first included access to the upper tiers of seats via stairs on the rear wall. They found a small shrine next to its north entrance. The second excavation provided seat access via vaulted stairways. The two buildings differed both from each other and all other British amphitheatres, underlining the importance of Roman Chester.
