Displayed here are the remains of the base and plinth of the curtain-wall of the Roman fortress of DEVA. This wall was completed in the 3rd century and was unique in Roman Britain for the quality and grandeur of it's design. It stood 6 metres high and was provided with 10 metre high towers at regular intervals. The Roman wall was replaced by today's City Wall in the 12th and 13th centuries.
