The Romans in Britain

“The toga was often to be seen among them”: with these words the Roman Historian Tacitus described the Britons adopting the Roman way of life at an early stage of their long career as Roman Provincials.”
Peter Salway. A History of Roman Britain. Oxford University Press, 2001.

Find out what everyday life was like for the Romans in Britain. Dress as a citizen (or a slave) and recreate a typical Roman town. Visit the forum to stock up on supplies. Learn about the gods and the gladiators. Try your hand at casting a curse and hear a traditional Celtic or Roman story.

Each workshop lasts for approximately two hours and is suitable for groups of around thirty children.
