Callendar House is excited to host Gladiators: A Cemetery Of Secrets, on loan from The Jorvik Centre from 19th May to 6th October 2019.
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.
Accompanying the exhibition is an engaging hands-on area based on a Roman market where pupils can explore what life was like in a Roman town.
Ideal for primary 4-7
£1.50 per pupil
