Lunt Roman Fort

Overview

It’s A.D. 60; the Iceni of East Anglia led by the legendary Boudica have rebelled against Roman rule, and have just been defeated in a terrible battle fought somewhere in the Midlands. As a result the Romans are building a series of fortifications across the Midlands including the Lunt…

Come and explore this partially-reconstructed timber fort. Stand on the ramparts, explore the exhibition about life in a fort in Roman times, try Roman games in the granary and imagine yourself training horses in the gyrus – a feature not found anywhere else in the Roman Empire.
