Caerleon Roman Barracks


Here is Jack the dog surveying the former Roman Barracks. The remaining Barracks are a series of fondation walls, side by side, in neat rows. This is only part of the complex.

Caerleon has the finest remains of Roman barrack buildings in Europe. A block housed a century - 80 men. The larger rooms were reserved for the centurion.

Legionaries shared quarters - eight men to a room.

I'll bet snoring was a real problem but they presumably kept warm in such tiny quarters.
