Canterbury Roman Museum

Canterbury Roman Museum

Introduction

The Roman Museum is underground at the level of the Roman town. It's an exhilarating mix of excavated real objects, genuine reconstructions, and preserved remains of a Roman town house with its celebrated mosaics.

Reconstructions include a Roman market place, with a shoe maker, fabric seller and fruit and vegetable stall. There is also part of a house complete with its kitchen set out in authentic detail.

 A clever computer program brings together images of the excavations on the site, and from the archaeologists' detail it generates reconstruction pictures of what the large house found here was like in Roman times.

 

There is also a ‘test your skills’ touch screen computer game on Roman technology and at the end of the museum is the acclaimed ‘touch the past’ area where the visitor can feel genuine Roman artefacts and follow the archaeologist's skills of reasoning.

 

There are rest rooms and a shop.
