Gladiators: A Cemetery of Secrets
A touring exhibition brought to you by The JORVIK Group
Saturday 29 May to Saturday 28 August 2021
An exciting opportunity for all to come and explore Roman life in Britain through archaeological relics, a Roman market square and replica armour and artefacts.
When a Roman cemetery was unearthed in York in 2004, the 80 burials intrigued archaeologists. This exhibition explores the latest archaeological research, showing the human remains alongside Roman age finds and replica helmets and armour, piecing together the stories of these men.
Much of the evidence suggests that they were gladiators; but they could also have been soldiers, criminals or slaves, brought to the dynamic town of Eboracum from across the Roman world.
Immerse yourself in a fascinating journey though Roman life, with this captivating exhibition that includes activities and a short film suitable for both adults and children.
We will be operating a one-way system, number of visitors will be monitored and we are following Covid-19 safety guidance.
