Iron Age Fun Day at Corinium Museum, Cirencester

Families get the chance to follow in the footsteps of the Cotswold Celts with a fun-packed day at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Saturday, July 15.

The special event, being staged as part of National Archaeology Week, features history re-enactment group Brigantia who will be on hand to demonstrate aspects of Celtic everyday life. Brigantia is dedicated to the pagan tribes of Britain of the third to first centuries BC, also known as the Celts.

Visitors will be able to have their faces painted just like the Celts. Join us for a modern look at the ancient Celtic myths being told through a series of fun cartoons.

The Museum's Archaeological Officer, Dr Alison Brookes, an Iron Age Britain specialist, will be delivering a series of talks throughout the day from the mysteries of Celtic art to the magnificent Birdlip burial. This is a fantastic opportunity to find out all about the Dobunni, the local Cotswold Celtic people.

All activities, which run from 10am to 4pm, are included in the cost of admission. For further information about the event, please contact the Corinium Museum, Cirencester on 01285 655611 or e-mail
