Excavations at Caerleon 2011

Over recent years, staff and students from Cardiff University have been undertaking archaeological surveys and excavations at Caerleon. A complex of buildings outside the Roman fortress was located by a survey in 2010. This area in now referred to as 'The Lost City of the Legion'.

In the summer of 2011 a number of excavation pits were opened to explore part of this area in a field between the amphitheatre and the bank of the River Usk. This led to the discovery of the first Roman port in the UK outside of London.

The site was visited by the Time Team television program for three days.
