A final visit to Calleva, a Roman Town to see the latest excavations.
Calleva Atrebatum (“Calleva of the Atrebates“) was originally an Iron Age settlement, capital of the Atrebates tribe, and subsequently a town in the Roman province of Britannia. Its ruins lie to the west of, and partly beneath, the Church of St Mary the Virgin, Silchester, in the county of Hampshire. The church occupies a site just within the ancient walls of Calleva, although the village of Silchester itself now lies about a mile (1.6 km) to the west.
Limited to 16 persons, car sharing.
