Travel through every era in Cirencester's history, from Stone Age to Civil War.
Cirencester was once a major Roman town. And while the markets, streets, actually, just about everything, have changed in the succeeding 2,000 years, Corinium Dobunnorum, as it was once known, has left a considerable mark on the local landscape.
The Corinium Museum is a worthy showcase of all the Romans did in town, and everyone since. A huge collection of artefacts, from pottery and paintings to jewellery and bones, makes it a vital stop on any trip through the region. Some of its treasures include an ornate column featuring the god Jupiter and a long barrow built in the Stone Age. Don't miss the mosaics, which are among the best in England.
