Malton Museum Roman Festival 2022
Malton Museum is hosting a celebration of all things Roman at their very own Roman Festival! It runs alongside their Roman exhibition and the national celebrations of #hadrian1900.
Held at the Roman Fort on Orchard Fields, there will be live-action demonstrations in the arena from experimental archaeologists Equistry (Roman Cavalry) and battle sequences from Magister Militum, a re-enactment group that will have a large Roman Legionary encampment.
There will also be a Children’s Roman Army area, with a paint-your-own shield activity, mosaic making, wax tablet drawing, archaeology (mini dig) and the chance to dress up as a Roman soldier or a Roman Briton. There’ll be displays, stands and food and drink available. Malton Museum will also have its own ‘mini museum’.
