There€™s no better way of learning about history than actually stepping into it €“ and that is precisely what visitors can do this summer at Wroxeter Roman City, near Shrewsbury. Every Tuesday and Wednesday from 31 July to 22 August, they are invited to come and join the Roman army or try their hand at gladiatorial combat as English Heritage€™s Time Travellers Go... Roman!
It was founded as a military garrison, but soon came to be one of the largest civilian cities in the whole of Britain, and this August bank holiday weekend, a Roman family will move into the Town House at Wroxeter Roman City to give visitors a taste of civilian life in second century Virconium!
On display until 24th September 2012. FREE admission.
