We'll be welcoming back the world renowned Ermine Street Guard reenactment group to both of our sites in August 2021.

There will be:

Roman Army School at the Roman Army Museum - learn how to be a Roman soldier! These sessions will run twice an hour from 11am until 4pm. 

Military displays of armour and technique on site at Vindolanda

Roman encampment - See how Roman shoes are made, have a coin minted for you, see some of the tools and kit a Roman soldier would have to carry with him!

We strongly recommend booking your tickets and arrival slots for this event. Those without a pre-booked slot may be turned away if we have reached capacity.
