In the first century the Romans were the first people to create a city where Lincoln now stands – Lindum Colonia. Our extensive Roman artefact collections give an insight into what life must have been like at the time. We even have our very own Roman mosaic found on the site of the museum!
Our full day workshop sessions include:
Museum Investigation – Roman Lincoln brought to life with a tour of the displays and object handling.
Plus two of the following:
Digging the Romans – Work in teams to excavate and record Roman finds.
Life in Lindum Colonia – Go shopping in this centre of Roman trade and find out what foods were available and how they were paid for in our immersive shopping experience. This session also includes optional dressing up.
Life in the Roman Army – Learn how Roman soldiers were chosen and trained with a chance to march and handle replica equipment.
Roman Posterngate – You may wish to swap one of your workshop sessions for a guided visit to the underground remains of the south wall and gateway of Lindum Colonia (a 10 minute walk away from the museum). Group sizes are limited to 20 people per visit.
Cross site workshops – For groups of 30 or less we have a bespoke cross site Roman Lincoln offer which includes sessions at Lincoln Museum and a wall tour at Lincoln Castle. Please ask the Learning Team for more information.
