  1. Eboracum Roman Festival

    1st to 4th June 2017

    ROMANS gather in York once more, by popular demand, the armies of ancient Rome are marching on York this summer complete with military parades, siege weapon demonstrations, archaeological investigations, birds of prey displays, a living history camp and talks by expert speakers.

    The Eboracum Roman Festival will take place in Museum Gardens, and will include parades, weapon demonstrations, army drills and a Roman camp with stalls selling themed items.
    Event spokesman Graham Harris, who runs the Roman Bath Museum in St Sampson’s Square, said: “There would certainly be no York as we know it today without the influence of the Romans. It was an important Roman garrison, and became a major civilian settlement during the Roman occupation, which lasted almost 350 years.
    “We are delighted that this heritage is once again being celebrated in the form of a festival, with fantastic speakers, events and activities all over the city for all levels of interests.
    “The hub will be the Roman camp in the York Museum Gardens which will come alive with military displays and demonstrations of Roman life. We hope people will visit to learn about this period of the city’s history and enjoy what we hope will become an annual event.”
