Caerleon  Monmouthshire


In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Caerleon like this:

Caerleon, town with ry. sta., Llangattock par., S. Monmouthshire, on river Usk, 2½ miles NE. of Newport and 26 miles NW. of Bristol, pop. 1099; P.O., T.O. It was the Isca Silurum of the Romans, and at a later period a celebrated seat of religion and learning. In an adjacent field is an elliptical cavity called Arthur's Round Table, probably the relic of a Roman amphitheatre.
