About

Bring your little (and big) ones for free Roman- inspired family activities in the majestic surrounds of Guildhall Yard and London’s Roman Am- phitheatre where there’ll be plenty to keep young centurions, budding Ciceros or Lara Crofts entertained. 

Highlights include:

The Big Dig

Fancy yourself an archaeologist? Then grab a hard hat and a trowel and join the team from the Museum of London to excavate the trenches of the Big Dig in Guildhall Yard. Experts will be on hand to show you how to record, analyse, identify and interpret your nds and, piece by piece, you’ll uncover the fascinating world of early Londoners. You can also join an object handling session and hold genuine Roman antiquities with a trained archaeologist in the Amphitheatre. 

Caroline Lawrence

Award-winning author of the children’s best-selling book series The Roman Mysteries, will be leading workshops on how to write your own Roman mystery. She’ll explain how she nds her inspiration in art and objects, develops characters like Flavia and Nubia, and may even reveal a secret or two from her new Roman Quests series set in Roman Britain.
