Caerleon, a little old town of Monmouthshire, on the right bank of the Usk, and between 2 and 3 miles from Newport. It is the Roman Isca Silurum, the ancient capital of Britannia Secunda, and afterwards it became the capital of Wales. Besides the Roman remains of all kinds which are found in great abundance, there are the remains of an amphitheatre, which are called "The Round Table," or "Arthur's Table," since it was here that Arthur founded the famous Order, according to Geoffrey of Monmouth and Alfred Tennyson.
