Dewa Roman Experience

The actual Roman fortress of Dewa was established in AD 43 under the reign of Emperor Claudius and would have housed a garrison of 6000 men. Although now buried under modern day Chester, it lives on through the Dewa Roman Experience. Most museums have exhibits that are available to the visitor, but this is a completely different approach.

On entering, you go into the Roman Galley where there are exhibits of Roman Chester, many of which are 'hands on' type, where you can handle items such as pottery, try on a suit of Roman armour, fire the catapult and design mosaics.
