What did the Romans ever do for us?

Posted: 04/07/2008 01:36:50

A window will be opened on Wiltshire's Roman past at two events being held at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre to mark National Archaeology Day on July 19th.

There will be a series of Roman-inspired activities for children such as mosaic making, sorting through real Roman finds and dressing up as a Roman soldier. Sessions will be held between 11am and 12pm and 12pm and 1pm.

There will be a talk by Phil Andrews (Wessex Archaeology) and Melanie Pomeroy-Kellinger (county archaeologist) about recent field work at Truckle Hill Roman Bath House in North Wraxall at the history centre between 2pm and 3pm. This will be followed by a tour of the site between 3.30pm and 4.30pm, although people will need their own transport to get to and from it, with the journey taking about 20 minutes each way.

Both events are being provided by Wiltshire County Council's archaeology service together with Wessex Archaeology.

Places at all these events are free but they need to be booked in advance. To book call Nancy Danks on 01249 705504 or email [email protected]

The history centre is jointly run by the county council and Swindon Borough Council to helping people to discover, participate and contribute to local history.
