Today's stones don't do justice to the colour and excitemant of the Roman World but at least in the Graham Webster Gallery some duplicate painted examples are shown while the impressive gallery and its wall mural create a stunning display. Here the author, Roy Wilding explains some of the mythic themes behind the carvings in this souvenir guide. The guide can also be found in the book Death in Chester.
