About St Albans Verulamium
Our Club Emblem - Venus
We are one of three Rotary clubs in St Albans and take our name from the roman city of Verulamium founded on the ancient celtic site of Verlamion - “settlement above the marsh”. After the Roman invasion of AD43, it was renamed Verulamium and became the third largest Roman city in Britain.
Our club emblem is a bronze statue of Venus found in the excavations of the 1930’s by Mortimer Wheeler and is housed in the wonderful museum of Verulamium. Read More
