Description:

Discover the remains of a Roman bathhouse and explore Leicester's Museum of Archaeology.


The site's centrepiece is Jewry Wall, the second largest piece of upstanding Roman civil masonry in the country.  Using archaeological finds the museum tells the story of Leicester from prehistory to the end of the medieval period. 


Situated adjacent to the awe-inspiring remains of the Roman public baths, the museum also holds some fine examples of Roman mosaics and painted wall plaster.
