Join us and the Tynedale Archers to practice your archery skills overlooking the ancient Roman Fort of Magna at this family-friendly event. Aim for the high score on the target as you have a go at shooting a bow and arrow. Can you be as accurate as the Roman soldiers would have been? 

Magna Fort, at the site of the Roman Army Museum, was home to a cohort of Hamian archers arriving in Britannia from Syria. Colour in your own Hamian archer as you learn more about the diverse cohorts who were stationed on Hadrian’s Wall.

This is part of our Awaken Your Senses programme.

If you can’t join us on the day, download this worksheet to and practice your aim – see if you can beat your high score

This event is free with normal admission to the museum.
