Eboracum Roman Festival 2020 – Fri 29 May 2020

Dates: Friday 29 May 2020–Sunday 31 May 2020, All Day
Venue: Yorkshire Museum

The Eboracum Roman Festival returns on the 29-31 May 2020, to take visitors on an historic journey back more than 2000 years to Roman York.

On 30 and 31 May, six legion armies will invade this ancient city to set up camp in York Museum Gardens. Join the parades as the Roman legionaries march through the streets they once ruled and discover how they established York as a Roman Fortress.

In the Roman Arena, enrol onto the ‘Kids Army’, discover what the fashionable Roman would wear and see the legionaries gather for military displays.

Meet the writers behind the best-selling Roman novels, join guided tours of the city and meet local archaeological groups to uncover a buried city beneath your feet.

In the Yorkshire Museum, see some of Britain’s greatest Roman treasures including the statue of Mars, the Wold Newton Hoard and the head of Constantine and join in with family-friendly activities.

On the 29 May, following a sell-out event in 2019, join us for The John Hampshire Memorial Symposium. Explore recent and exciting archaeological fieldwork, research and community projects with a range of expert speakers from York and beyond.

Full details to come soon!
