The Romans in Barry

At the Roman remains in Barry

What brings people to Barry? Memories of Gavin and Stacey? The beaches? The funfairs and arcades? Or the Roman remains?

If it is not already the latter then let me put that right.

In this video I take you on a guided tour of the fourth century remains at the Knap in Barry. I share with you what was found there, what that tells us about the place, how it was found and the many interesting theories that emerged as to what happened there.

Was it a villa? a naval port? The headquarters of a Roman rebellion? The truth is even more mysterious than the wildest guesses.

This video is an episode in the History from the Vale of Glamorgan series. I hope you enjoy it.
