Examples Of Our Living History Workshops & Parties

Brigantes, the Freed Roman Slave telling storiesRoman History Alive workshop 
Watch as history jumps out of the books!

  • Hear all about a typical day in the life of Briggantes and his Roman masters
  • Ask him anything you like (within Roman reason)
  • Get out of your seats and try out a Roman Soldier’s Drill – find out what all this has to do with Tortoises!
  • Hear a fantastic story from Briggantes and maybe even help him to tell it.

The workshops can happen wherever you like, but are most suitable for schools, libraries and for groups of less than 50 children.
