Roman Wiltshire day on July 19th

From This is Salisbury

A WINDOW will be opened on Wiltshire’s Roman past at two events being held at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre to mark National Archaeology Day on July 19.

There will be a series of Roman-inspired activities for children such as mosaic making, sorting through real Roman finds and dressing up as a Roman soldier.

Sessions will be held between 11am and 12pm and 12pm and 1pm.

There will be a talk by Phil Andrews from Wessex Archaeology and county archaeologist Melanie Pomeroy-Kellinger, about recent field work at Truckle Hill Roman Bath House in North Wraxall between 2pm and 3pm.

This will be followed by a tour of the site between 3.30pm and 4.30pm, although visitors will need their own transport to get to and from it, with the journey taking about 20 minutes each way.

Both events are being organised by Wiltshire County Council’s archaeology service together with Wessex Archaeology.

Places at all these events are free but they need to be booked in advance. To book call Nancy Danks on 01249 705504 or email
