SUITABLE FOR

Everyone

This half term, join in the adventurous quest of our two Victorian time travellers who helped discover Chesters' Roman remains and its ancient artefacts. 

Find out about the tools used to excavate, take part in activities to guess what the fragments from the past were used for and visit our museum to see Roman objects and original archaeology on display. 

There will also be tours throughout the day with our Victorian characters taking you around the area where many of the artefacts were unearthed by the likes of John Clayton and his team of archaeologists.
