Join the Roman Army!

Saturday June 1st and Sunday June 2nd

Have you got what it takes to join the Roman army?

We are looking for young people to come and see if they have what it takes.

After the success of the Be a Viking! event in February where we opened up activities from our Viking Schools workshops top the public we have decided to do the same with our Roman school workshops as it it the Eboracum Roman Festival in York.

Children will get chance to wear a Roman uniform, learn to use a spear and shield, sword and throw a javelin. As well as the military side there is also the opportunity to make a Roman lamp from clay to take home with you.

The experience will take approximately 1 1/2 hours. The Roman Centurion will be gathering new recruits at 10.30 12.30 and 2.30

This does take place outside so outdoor clothing and footwear is strongly recommended.

This is included in the standard admission fee.

*Although this is predominantly aimed at children we require an adult to stay with your group.
