As a kid my class was taken on a school day trip to Silchester, a wonderful Roman town we were told, so interesting.

That is the forum, where everybody met, discussed and decided.
I saw a grassy mound.

That is the amphitheatre, for plays, big events and entertainment.
I saw a duck pond.

Here is the wonderful exhibition of Roman artifacts.
I saw a shed full of pottery shards.

See also Calleva Atrebatum and Wikipedia and shard or sherd.
