The Romans of course did not know the city as Chester. They called it Deva Victrix or simply Deva (pronounced dee-wa). The local tourist office puts on the training for kids each summer – it’s always a success and profits go to the amphitheater restoration project – much of it is still underground. Plus visitors to the amphitheater get to hear a Roman Centurion barking out orders to his troops.
When things are a little calmer, Roman Centurions are happy to talk to the tourists.
