LIFE AND DEATH IN EBORACUM
Saturday 7th September
2000 years ago, a legion of the mighty Roman army built a fortress between the River Ouse and River Foss, and Eboracum was born. Excavations by York Archaeological Trust have revealed tantalising glimpses of the Roman city – a thriving settlement on the frontier of a great empire.
Life and Death in Eboracum explores the fascinating evidence for the city’s trades, cultures and traditions, uncovered over four decades of excavations. As the Trust plans a major new dig as part of the proposed Roman Quarter development, discover what we know so far about a city that began as wooden barracks, but became a centre of commerce, wealth and power.
The Life and Death in Eboracum exhibition is located at DIG, St Saviourgate, York, YO1 8NN.
The exhibition is included with a standard ticket to DIG, or an exhibition-only ticket can be purchased on the door for:
Concessions & Children: £1.50
