Give a Day or Two

Family Fun Assistant at Segedunum Roman Fort

Every Monday in the holidays we combine art and history to create fun Roman and Iron Age crafts and activities for families from 11-3. But we need your help. We will create and prepare the activity, although we welcome any ideas or suggestions you have and then support you to deliver it on the day.

We need people interested in history, but who also enjoy being creative to help deliver our craft activities and encourage interest in the history of Segedunum Roman Fort. You will be mainly working with other volubnteers in our Roman Gallery. Previous activities have included metal embossing, making medicines, helping with battle drills, painting frescoes, helping with drama role play days, making swords and shields and play with clay.
