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.

Complete your session with the chance to make and take home a Roman style wire-wrap ring…similar to those found at the site of Trimontium…

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 approx. 10yrs and up). This is a new product that we are trialling in February, with a view to offering regular handling workshops.
