Roman Day returns to Welwyn Roman Baths

Take a step back in time this Sunday (23 June) at the annual Roman Day event at Welwyn Roman Baths, from 2-5pm.

Roman Baths

Visitors can meet Tony Rook, who will be giving talks about the discovery of the bath house and the significance of the site, take part in geophysical surveying with the Welwyn Archaeological Society and discover typical Roman food.

 

There's also the chance to be a young archaeologist, trying out sand pit digging to see what you find, as well as a variety of other children's activities, including clay pot making. You can even dress up as a Roman!

 

Councillor Terry Mitchinson, Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Communications, said:

Roman Day is a great opportunity for people to come and explore the fascinating remains of our almost 1,800 year old bath house, and learn more about Roman life in Welwyn Hatfield.

 

There are plenty of children's activities on offer, and it makes for a fantastic day out for the whole family.

 

The event is part of Welwyn Festival Week, which runs from 14- 23 June.
