Ever wanted to live the life of a Roman? Join us at Murton Park to explore how our ancestors lived through history. We’re running two hour living history experiences that allow visitors to step back in time and pretend to be somebody from the past.
Roman activity sessions include:
- Vindolanda Tablet Writing – write your own message in Latin cursive on a wooden tablet using a dipping pen
- Weapons training – practice with wooden swords, and drill for a Roman battle
- Weapons talk/handling – have a look at our collection of replica Roman weapons and armour
Sessions: 10.30am-12.30pm & 1pm-3pm
Cost: £8 per person, with a valid annual pass (Children must be accompanied by an adult)
Suitable for ages: 7-77!
