Children sifting sand to find archaeological artefacts.

Let the kids get stuck in to history with the chance to uncover clues, and handle artefacts.

 Take part in a sand pit dig to unveil secrets from the time when around 500 cavalry troops were based at Chesters Roman Fort.

Plus, we'll have plenty of hands on activities to keep your mini detective busy, including colouring and games, sword skills, armour handling, storytelling and hobby horse racing!
