Gelligaer is an ancient community with a Roman past that was hidden until Edwardian archaeologists started to excavated Gaer Fawr and Gaer Fach and confirmed that there was a Roman Fort hidden beneath the grass.
In 2010, almost 2000 years after the Romans and Silure battled across these hills, Gelligaer is again telling the story of the Romans in the Valleys of south Wales. Why not come and visit this village, which has a history that stretches back to pre history, and a heritage waiting for you to explore.
A new guidebook has been published by the Roman Fort project.
