The Lunt is an excellent example of an early Roman fort and is the only reconstructed Roman cavalry fort in Britain. Based on the archaeological evidence on site, the Lunt's imposing wooden gateway and ramparts have been reconstructed to create a glimpse into the history of Roman Britain.
Educational visits to the Lunt are tailored to the Key Stage 2 History curriculum, supporting your study of the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
The Lunt is open on weekdays for pre-booked visits only. We are closed from early December and normally reopen after the February half term holiday. PLEASE NOTE: Because of redevelopment work on the site our winter closure in 2015 will be longer than usual. School visits will not resume until after the Easter holidays. Please contact us for exact closure dates nearer the time.
Our teachers’ resource pack complements the facilitated sessions with suggestions for pre or post visit cross-curricular activities. You can download it from the 'Following in the Footsteps of Soldiers' page.
