** Public Notice **

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Roman Army Museum is currently closed. Please check our website before you plan your visit - we will re-open as soon as we are able to. 

Opening at the end of March, this exhibition will focus on the ordinary soldier.

Over 40 objects are being loaned to the museum from a private collector and highlights include a complete legionary helmet found at a site in Wiesbaden-Erbenheim (Germany) in 1971/72 and a military diploma bestowing Roman Citizenship to Longinus Festius who served as a member of a unit of Syrian archers and who were later stationed at Magna, the fort next to the Roman Army Museum. This collection of artefacts will also highlight a range of fascinating fibula or brooches illustrating the Roman soldiers flare for the decorative.
