History Week – The Romans! @ Weston Museum

History Week - The Romans! @ Weston Museum | England | United Kingdom

Our ever popular History Week is back! From Monday to Friday, there will be different eras moving through time up to the Twentieth Century, with reenactors on some days or the chance to immerse yourself in historical living on others.

On Monday, we will be joined by some real Romans (reeneactors, but don’t tell anyone!), so you can meet a Roman, learn about what life was like under the rule of the empire and even have a go at some military marching!

The museum is free entry all year round. Monday’s Roman event in our lovely covered courtyard area is free to enter too and you don’t need to book on this day, but other events throughout the week need to be booked in advance.
