The amphitheatre was an important building in roman times. the ruins of the amphitheatre were only discovered in 1988, when builders were digging foundations for the new art gallery. Archaeologists had long suspected that the roman town of Londinium had an amphitheatre. but as Jenny Hall, Museum of London’s roman curator, explains, “we’d been looking outside the city wall and this amphitheatre, unusually, is inside the city wall”. the ruins of the structure have been well preserved and musealized in situ, and you can still see the remains of the original walls, drainage system, and even the sand that filled the arena.
