Family Drop-in: Roman Helmets

Festival of Archaeology Fringe 2018

Make and decorate your own Roman Centurion helmet, inspired by the Roman Army, to take home.

The fun morning drop-in will provide you with the tools to create your own Roman helmet. Helmets were worn to protect the face and often had cheek plates and a rim around the neck. They were made from metal, usually bronze, and prevented soldiers from being harmed swords and spears. Create your own protective helmet and wear it with pride, just like a Roman soldier.
