Romans in Residence!
Site: Discovery Centre
This workshop is led by museums staff.
Roman Britain wasn't all about and empire-building and training soldiers to fight. Everyone had to live somewhere and somehow.
During this two-hour workshop, we use Dalton Parlours, a local Roman archaeological site that was once someone's home, to find out about how the Romans lived in Britain. Pupils will handle real Roman artefacts and have a go at making their own replica Roman mortarium.
All workshops at the Discovery Centre include a tour or our museum store where we house the million objects looked after by Leeds Museums and Galleries.
Want to make a day of it? How about combining this workshop with the Romans workshop at Leeds City Museum to look at the empire and home life of the Romans?
