Corinium Museum

Cirencester, Gloucestershire

Quick Guide
See below grid for details

The Corinium Museum holds some of the treasures of the Cotswolds. Here you can come face to face with:

The Romans - Corinium was the second largest city in Roman Britain, population c. 15, 000. Here you can experience life as a Roman, see mosaics, explore their engineering and artistry and children can dress as a Roman soldier.

The Saxons - Take a look at the along-saxons from Butlers Field in nearby Lechlade. Ancestors have been brought to life with the use of forensically re-constructed heads.

Iron age to the English Civil War - can be traced with the story of ware, wool, royalty, dissolved monasteries and the rise from rags to riches of some of the local wealthy.

18th and 19th Century Cirencester is recreated through a computer database and a collection of historic photographs.

This page is a Quick Guide, the idea of Quick Guides is to allow very basic information and linking forward information to be added to the system rather than having to wait until a full location guide has been developed. It should therefore be considered a development stage rather than a finished objective. Once more information is known the objective is to create either a Location or Featured Location page which has two grids and far more information.

Please let us know any other information that we can add to the Grid(s) or page and any errors that you discover. Before making a long trip to any location it is always wise to double check the current information, websites like magazines may be correct at the time the information is written, but things change and it is of course impossible to double check all entries on a regular basis. If you have any good photographs that you feel would improve the illustration of this page then please let us have copies. In referring to this page it is helpful if you quote both the Page Ref and Topic or Section references from the Grid below. To print the planning grid select it then right click and print the selected area.

Please submit information on locations you discover so that this system continues to grow.
