Local schools explore Roman Aldborough

The Friend of Roman Aldborough (FORA) with English Heritage have organised visits from local school groups this autumn. Children from Years 3 & 4 at Roecliffe CofE Primary and Boroughbridge Primary visited the site last week. They had the chance to be shown around the excavated remains in the museum garden, see the mosaics, work with the handling collection and make their own mosaics. It was fantastic to see the next generation finding out about the archaeology where they live.

If you want to organise a visit for your school, get in touch with FORA at http://romanaldborough.co.uk/ or English Heritage http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/learn/school-visits/

And if you’d like to visit the site as a visitor, the English Heritage museum reopens again on the 30th March (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/aldborough-roman-site/prices-and-opening-times). However, you can walk round the village and see many parts of the Roman town at any time (you might find the English Heritage guidebook helpful (available https://www.english-heritageshop.org.uk/books-media/guidebook-aldborough-roman-town0)
