21st & 22nd July 2007, Return of the Romans, DLI Museum, Durham City:  Roman Pottery Demonstration as part of this event
For 350 years, County Durham was part of the Roman Empire. But what was life like for the people who lived here then? At one time, northern Britannia was seen as a cold backwater, living in the shadow of invasion from the north but major new discoveries at Binchester, Sedgefield and elsewhere have now changed how historians and archaeologists see this part of the Roman Empire. This major exhibition explores life in northern Britannia using original objects, many only recently discovered and never seen on display before; the best of Ron Embleton's atmospheric watercolours reconstructing life in Roman Britain; plus full-size replicas of Roman armour, weapons and military equipment, including artillery like the ballista (giant cross bow) and onager (catapult).  The exhibition is supported by a wide-ranging programme of family-friendly events.
