Verulamium was one of the largest cities in Roman Britain. It was founded in AD 49 and rebuilt at least twice, once after being sacked in AD 61 and again in AD 155 after a major fire. The site is now a public park, called Verulamium Park. The museum provides a fascinating glimpse into Roman life. The Roman Theatre was used for religious and civil ceremonies. The hypocaust (central heating system) and remains of the fortifications are also of interest.
