Arbeia children’s day

The Shields Gazette

CHILDREN from South Tyneside have been bobbing and weaving at a Roman fort.

The youngsters were shown how the Romans used to do their weaving by staff at Arbeia in South Shields.

The children made friendship bracelets, as well as being taught about this part of Roman life.

About 50 children attended the free event, organised by Tyne and Wear museums. Alexandra Vent, gallery interpreter at Arbeia, said: “It was hugely successful.

“The children enjoyed it, along with the parents and grandparents.”
