About the Event
With special thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are delighted to offer you this unmissable opportunity to take part in a fun, educational and historical tour of Hadrian's Wall and Vindolanda Museum where you will learn about the wonders of the Roman Empire and how traditional Roman practices still influence our lives today.
This project will have three phases to it, and you will have the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of it. The first phase of our project will inspire people from our city to connect with ancient Roman heritage and to achieve this, we will organise trips and visits to a World Heritage Site, Hadrian’s Wall, to learn all about how over 2000 years ago, two worlds and cultures collided when the Romans settled in Northumberland. Working with historical experts from Ancient Britain, throughout the guided tours you will develop an understanding of the importance of Hadrian’s Wall, how it has been sustained and how it is unique to the history and heritage of our local area. Following on from this, we will take you to one the local Roman museums including Vindolanda, Chesters and Housesteads, where you will work with archaeological specialists and historians to discover ancient Roman artefacts, which will inform you on how our predecessors lived and survived, without any of the comforts of 21st Century living.
