Historical re-enactment society visits Perth

ROMAN soldiers set up camp at Perth Museum yesterday.

Members of the Antonine Guard living history re-enactment society arrived in formation at the George Street museum.

Adults and children from across Perth and Kinross were given an insight into the life of a Roman soldier, including weapons, armour and clothing.

Youngsters were also given the chance to try out Roman togas and armour.

The Scottish Urban Archaeological Trust showcased Roman artefacts and crafts at the event, before children tried their hand at making their own Roman helmet and coins.

A spokeswoman for Perth Museum said: “We’ve had a fantastic day. It’s been really successful.

“We’ve had more than 300 people. It was a really diverse audience and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.”

The next Perth Museum fun day, on September 20, will have a pirate theme.
