In the Footsteps of the Legionaries: The Roman Fortress at York – Sun 5 Jun 2016

Date: Sunday 5 June 2016, 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Venue: York Minster

The fortress at York was the home of first the Ninth and then the Sixth legions, and was occupied for over three centuries. Although largely buried beneath 1500 years of later occupation, its influence on the layout of the modern city can still be seen. This tour will consider the archaeological evidence for the fortress, as well as examining parts of the fortress still standing above ground (some of which are not normally accessible to the public). Led by Kurt Hunter-Mann (Research Associate, York Archaeological Trust).

This event is part of the Eboracum Roman Festival.

The walk will start at York Minster south entrance, Deangate, and end at the York Museum Gardens.

£6/ £5 concessions.

Tickets available online from www.visityork.org, in person from the York Visitor Information Centre, Museum Street, York YO1 7DT, or by phone: 01904 550099 (NB: For tickets sent by post there will be an additional postage charge).
