Turning Back The March Of Time At Dover Museum - Roman Festival 2008

Thursday, 3 July 2008
Dover Museum helped turn back the march of time when more than 1,000 pupils from across Kent and Surrey came along to learn what the Romans did for us, with the return of the popular Roman Festival.

Adults and children from 18 different schools came to Dover Museum for the festival, which ran from 17 to 20 June. Visitors had the chance to get dressed up in robes, togas and costumes, and to have their faces made up and hair styled Roman or Celtic fashion. The festival also included drama workshops and the opportunity to learn about mosaic making and life in the Roman army. There were also talks and artifact handling sessions and the chance to explore Dover Museum.
