Roman Takeover in Coventry City Centre

Witness part of the Roman legion take over Coventry!

Ten soldiers from The Lunt Roman Fort will march through the town dressed in their traditional battle attire, and the public will be able to ask questions, examine their uniforms and find out more about life in the Roman army.

 There will also be a chance to handle rare Roman artefacts in the centre of the precinct in an object handling session hosted by the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, and children will be able to pick up activity sheets to do at home if they visit after school.

All object handling and the legion will be located in Broadgate unless the weather is extremely poor where they will be moved to Lower Precinct. Drop by to find out about this fascinating era while you do your shopping!
