These Roman pots from North Africa are just some of the objects that participants will be able to examine and even handle at our workshops on 9 and 10 May at the Great North Museum. There will also be lamps, a glass vessel, pieces of sculpture, and coins of Roman emperors who came from North Africa or the Middle East, such as Septimius Severus, Caracalla, and Philip the Arab.
What memories might these objects have evoked in the people that saw and used them in the past? What memories do they evoke for us today? Come and join us to explore these ideas – just let us know which workshop suits you best.
See our Workshops page for more details.
