Mr Monkey scampered onto the special walkway that's been built across the amphitheatre. English Heritage have been excavating the outer parts of the amphitheatre, and Mr Monkey would have been able to see the new excavations if they hadn't been covered up. Apparently, the inner wall was originally 12 feet high, and the outer wall should really stand 40 feet above street level.
You can read about the excavation of the amphitheatre at the Chester Amphitheatre Project website.
