Love Maryport Roman Celebration 15-18 August 2013

Maryport was the centre of a thriving commercial network in Roman times as well as being the site of a Roman Fort and town.  This 4 day event will highlight and celebrate all things Roman.

And The Deja Crew will be there brining Roman Britain back to life with activities for all the Family.  We will be out and about in Maryport, with events at The Wave, Story Walks across Town and activities at Senhouse Roman Fort.

Listen to stories with Shamus, the wise man.  Get kitted out as a Roman Soldier as Rufus Aelius Victor regales you with tales of life in the Roman Army.  Muriel will reveal the mysteries of the Herbalist whilst Sulwyn will help you make an amulet to guard you from harm.  Learn from Nest and Gaius the importance of crafts-people to local trade, as they demonstrate their skill at weaving and potting

Comments from other events: 
"really interesting and enjoyable"
"Brilliant demonstrations, children loved it.  Really friendly and informative"
"Thank you very much.  You made my day, what with the pottery and metal work"
"Your corner has been the highlight of the day"

free event, no booking required.  The Deja Crew will be appearing from 11:00am at Senhouse Roman Museum and The Wave in Maryport.

There's not just The Deja Crew -  there'll be guided tours of the Fort, walks and cycle rides along the coast and even an Italian Market.  Watch this blog for more details in the coming days....
Hope to see you there!
