The "Civitas Silurum Stone"
The "Civitas Silurum Stone"
This stone appears to have been the base of a statue (now lost?), and bears an important inscription which confirms the existence of the Civitas Silurum or the Romanized self-governing body of the Silures tribe. The so-called 'Civitas Silurum Stone' is now on display in Caerwent church.
