What is a Gallery Volunteer?
This summer, Callendar House is hosting an exciting exhibition – Gladiators: a cemetery of secrets, on loan from the renowned Jorvick Centre in York. The exhibition showcases skeletal remains of six men, all of whom were decapitated and suffered injuries prior to death, and were buried in a cemetery alongside other Roman-age material in York. Recent research has uncovered more about who these men were, where they came from, how they died and evidence suggests that they were Gladiators active in Northern Britain.
We are inviting individuals to share their passion for history and/or the arts and join us as Gallery Volunteers for this exciting opportunity volunteering at a World Heritage Site. Gallery Volunteers will help us engage our visitors with this special exhibition of the suspected Gladiators, which will be shown for the first time in Scotland at Callendar House. Volunteers will meet and greet visitors and provide informal tours or information about the displays. All volunteers will be trained accordingly and will truly add that extra spark to this exciting new exhibition!
