A new museum experience for 2024 -A chance to come and enjoy a unique Roman object handling session with our experienced team here at Trimontium. In this session you will get up close and personal with a range or original artefacts from the Roman site at Trimontium and from across the Roman Empire. Our experienced staff will take you on a journey through the Roman Iron Age here in The Borders and using carefully selected original objects from the Trimontium Collections you will get the chance to examine & experience this intriguing and enigmatic part of Scotland’s history for yourself.

The objects will be enriched by detailed imagery, film and the known context of the object itself and its journey from the Roman past into the museum collections.

Your session will include the chance to make and take home a Roman style wire-wrap ring…similar to those found at the site of Trimontium. At the end of the workshop you will have free time to enjoy the Trimontium Museum Gallery and audio visuals.

This session is aimed at anyone interested in archaeology, the Roman Iron Age, museum collections and stories from the past.

Suitable for Adults and Children (from 8yrs and up). All materials and gallery guide included in the ticket price. The experience lasts approximately 135 minutes, 90 minutes for the workshop portion and 45 minutes to view the museum gallery. You are of course welcome to stay visiting the gallery as long as you’d like!
