The remains of the Roman city of Viriconium Cornoviorum

Viriconium Cornoviorum (now Wroxeter in the West of England) was founded as a Roman fort (castrum) in the middle of the 1st century CE, which was the base for the 14th Gemina legion, invading Wales. The city developed at the end of the 1st century and became the fourth largest city in Roman Britain.

Ośrodek znajdował się praktycznie na końcu rzymskiej drogi Watling Street, przechodzącej przez rzymską prowincję od Dubris (Dover). Miasto posiadało liczne publiczne budowle, w tym termy czy forum.
