The Legions of Rome return to invade the ancient city of York this summer for the annual Eboracum Roman Festival. Book now to avoid disappointment.

From 31 May – 2 June 2019, Roman Eboracum comes to life in the beautiful York Museum Gardens with a Roman Living History camp, Kids Army, demonstrations and activities for all ages.

  • marvel at the marble head of Constantine
  • stand at the tombstone of Lucius Duccius Rufinus, Standard Bearer of the Ninth Legion

Special family-friendly activities will take place throughout the museum; see if you measure up for the Roman Army, make mini catapults and more!
