Big Roman day at Kinneil

Posted on: 20/08/2019

Date: 14/09/2019, 10:00am to 3:00pm

Kinneil Museum, Kinneil Park, Bo’ness. EH51 0PR

Replica Roman leather tents will be on display outside the museum to give an idea of what it was like for a Roman soldier to be on military campaign in Scotland.  Other reproductions include a military flask, pottery and weapons.  This is your chance to handle a gladius – the short stabbing sword used by the legionaries – feel the weight.  Experts will be on hand to put the objects into context and provide additional information.

Kinneil House will also be open this day – so why not combine the two?
