Roman Days at Skipton


CRAVEN residents are being invited to commemorate National Archaeology Week from Saturday (12th – 20th July) with the Craven Museum & Gallery’.

The Skipton based museum and gallery is holding two Roman-themed fun days to celebrate archaeology.

On Wednesday 16th July experimental archaeologist
Graham Taylor will hold demonstrations and hands-on workshops from 10am
– 4pm and will be creating prehistoric and Roman Pottery outside
Skipton Town Hall.

On Saturday 19th July the museum is inviting
everyone to an Archaeology Technology family fun day. Visitors will be
able to take part in activities such as creating a Roman fresco wall
painting, designing their own mosaic and seeing how Roman cooks, Livia
and Flavia, prepare a traditional Roman Feast.

Cllr Ken Hart said: “This is a unique opportunity for
Craven residents to see archaeology in action and take part in some
unusual activities thanks to Craven Museum & Gallery. We want to
encourage everyone to explore the hidden heritage on their doorstep and
learn more about the past.”

Both events are free and there’s no need to book. For more information call Craven Museum & Gallery on 01756 706407.
