fancy aproaching the romans differently?

come and take part in our roman day

Look at the ingredients that the Romans used to cook with -and those they didn’t.


Develop your DT skills (and your concentration) by preparing a Roman feast, using original recipes written by Apicius.


Then enjoy the feast you have prepared…

March across the farm in Roman formation, sit on part of Hadrian’s Wall (‘The Disappearing Ditch’) eating a Roman snack and imagine being a Roman soldier on the frontier.

Pretend to be an archaeologist -and see what treasures you can unearth…

Look at treasures already found on the farm, and hold genuine Roman coins found on the farm!
