Meet the Romans!

Event date: 
Saturday, 27 August, 2016 to Sunday, 28 August, 2016
Kind of Event: 
for Public

Are you brave enough to meet our fierce Roman legion? Join us at Butser for Roman cooking, fantastic weaponry, authentic costumes, ancient carpentry, Roman numerals and archery demonstrations. Plus we’ll have ancient textile demonstrations and Mark the Celt in the Iron Age enclosure, as well as all our usual activities and children’s trail, plus cake and coffee in the visitor centre!

The weekend will also see the launch of our brand new fundraising campaign to renovate the Roman villa! The building of our villa was featured on the Discovery Channel around 13 years ago, and since then it has endured heavy wear and tear not just by 15,000 visitors a year – but 30,000 schoolchildren too! We have planned an extensive renovation project involving the walls, floors, mosaics and paintings of our villa, and over the next few months we will be holding a crowdfunding campaign to raise £100,000 to make the villa into the luxury Roman farmhouse it should be! We will announce more information soon.

Standard entrance rates apply.
