People of all ages are being invited to learn more about St Albans’ Roman heritage at Verulamium Park.
A series of events will be held in the park on Thursday, July 27, from 11am to 4pm.
Visitors will learn how treasures buried beneath the ground were uncovered, and the route of the famous Roman road, Watling Street.
St Albans council’s culture lead Cllr Annie Brewster said: “Verulamium Park is one of the city’s premier attractions and many aspects of its Roman past are still visible.
“This fun day, coming at the start of the school summer holidays, is a wonderful opportunity for people to enjoy themselves while learning about our amazing heritage.
