Roman fun in Castleford

Saturday 29th March was a day of Roman-inspired fun at Castleford Forum Museum.

Nearly 500 visitors came to 'meet the Romans' during the event - some market visitors, no doubt, intrigued by the rather scary-looking Roman at the door!

Once they made it past the unconventional doorman, visitors young and old were inspired by the decorative metalwork demonstrations, as intricate patterns were stamped onto bronze bracelets.

Our younger visitors had the opportunity to make their own Roman coin, try on Roman armour, play the Roman Messenger game - and add to our display wall of Roman artwork.

A fascinating look at Roman cosmetics, perfumes, medicine and the chance to try a Roman hairstyle completed the experience!
