Events Events Taste of the Empire Roman Chef John Crouch will have a display of food from the Roman times and take you through the everyday meals of a Roman living on the frontier. Looking at the range in diet as well as what we think of as everyday food that they wouldn't have had access to. This will be a fantastic opportunity to immerse yourself in the Roman world and use your senses. Our events are free with admission to the site so if you'd like to return again and again to some of our events this year you can become a Friend of Vindolanda which has discounts and unlimited visits for a year. Visit the Roman Army Museum to learn about how meals have changed since the Roman times and what the Roman soldiers diet would have been? Where they any healthier than we are?
