The theme for our meeting on Saturday 15 February 2020 is “Britons and Romans”.

LIFE CHANGED IN THE COLCHESTER AREA WHEN THE ROMANS INVADED. THEY WERE A HIGHLY-TRAINED AND WELL-EQUIPPED FIGHTING FORCE WHICH MADE BRITANNIA PART OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE, AND RETAINED IT AFTER A BLOODY REBELLION.

VOLUNTEER GILLIAN BROWN WILL BE MAKING JEWELLERY WITH US AND WE WILL BE COLOURING PICTURES OF BRITONS AND ROMANS.

MIKE MOUNT FROM COLCHESTER CASTLE WILL BE BRINGING SOME OF HIS ROMAN MILITARY GEAR FOR US TO IDENTIFY AND LOOK AT.

THERE WILL BE A QUIZ TOO, WITH PLENTY OF CLUES FOR THE ANSWERS. SEE YOU THERE!
