Church and museum in the traditional Capital of King Arthur

Church and museum in the traditional Capital of King Arthur

Caerleon is so widely associated with recent Roman discoveries that few persons remember that it is the traditional capital of King Arthur. The church here seen is of the fifteenth century, and near is the museum which contains Roman antiquities. Tennyson's name is in the visitors' book, and he resided at Caerleon for some months when seeking local colour for his "Idylls of the King," in which he preserved many of the legends of Caerleon. The amphitheatre which is being excavated is also known as King Arthur's Round Table.
