Imperator Nerva, Glevum
Imperator Nerva, Glevum
Gloucester was founded in AD 48 around a Roman fort under the name of Glevum. In AD 97, Emperor Nerva declared it a colonia, i.e. a city accommodating retired legionaries. Here we see the emperor riding from the central square to the southern gate of the colonia. The city centre of modern Gloucester still features the two axes intersecting at right angles at the Cross, which would have been laid out first by the Romans nearly 2000 years ago. The statue was made by Anthony Stone in 2002.
