The Amphitheatre in Cirencester was built in the early 2nd century AD. Excavations in the 1960’s uncovered two entrances and tiers of wooden seats laid on low dry stonewalls. Originally built of timber, in the mid 2nd century it was rebuilt in stone. It could hold an estimated 8,000 people. People would go there for entertainment and to hear public announcements.
The Whereat Trail
If you would like to explore Cirencester’s Roman Amphitheatre why not follow the Whereat Trail from the Corinium Museum to the Amphitheatre. Starting at the Corinium Museum, Park Street follow the signs or download the Whereat Trail leaflet from Cirencester Town Council.
