Winchester City Museum complete with Romans

This is Hampshire

THE Romans will be invading the City Museum in Winchester this half-term.

A legionary soldier in full military dress and a lady in all her finery will be visiting the museum in The Square from Thursday February 19 to Saturday February 21.

Both are from the Legio Secunda Augusta Living History Society.

Each day between 10am and 5pm visitors will be able to find out how the people of Venta Belgarum, the old Roman city of Winchester, lived nearly two thousand years ago.

Sher Kent of Winchester City Council Museums Service said: “We are always delighted to be able to host re-enactment events like this, as they are very popular with people of all ages and really help to bring the past to life.”
