DOE Guide: Chester

Image

The Department of the Environment also published a series of paper guides such as that for The Roman Amphiteatre at Chester by F.H. Thompson (reprinted 1972; cost 2 1/2 pence). Therewere seven pages of text, and a double page plan of the amphitheatre (although more than half was unexcavated).

The sections included an introduction (to amphitheatres in the Roman Empire), the discovery of the Chester amphitheatre (in 1929), the excavation and its results, and problems of excavation and conservation. 

The guide also pointed out issues relating to the modern drainage for the site.
