Caerwent Castle
Caerwent Castle
Originally thought to be a Norman motte built on site of a Roman fort, it seems more likely that the 'castle' is an early Roman site with little medieval connection. The site is a rectilinear arrangement of courts and ranges measuring about 74 metres long by 38 metres wide.
Excavations in the early 20th century revealed Roman building remnants and a partial mosaic. The site is about 600 metres to the north east of Caerwent Roman town.
