FISHBOURNE Roman Palace is set to host seasonal activities during the Easter holidays.

Roman gardens, springtime crafts and an Easter treasure hunt will all be held at the Palace.

Head of learning Katrina Burton said: “It is a great time to visit Fishbourne and take part in some seasonal hands-on activities, which are both fun and educational.

“There is plenty to do under cover so if the British weather does its worst, you can still have a great family day out.”

Activities will include making a Roman sundial and using it to tell the time, spinning wool into yarn and making a fluffy pom-pom chick, trying Roman writing, making a Roman wreath to celebrate spring and playing Roman games.

Families can also meet volunteers at the Roman palace on different days of the week, who will share their skills.

Some of the days offer the opportunity to taste Roman food, meet a Roman soldier, try your hand at weaving, find out about bathing in Roman times and meet a professional archaeologist.

Fishbourne Roman Palace dates back to the beginning of Roman occupation in Britain and offers visitors of all ages the chance to look back in time.

The events run from Monday, April 14 to Friday, April 18.
