What the Romans did for Ilchester
An Ilchester Museum Heritage Day
Saturday 10th October
9:30am to 4:30pm
On Saturday 10th October, Ilchester Museum is hosting a series of talks and presentations on our important and far-reaching Roman heritage.
Ilchester was a key settlement in Rome's conquest and rule of ancient Britain, a town in many respects more important than Dorchester and second only to Bath in the south west.
Come and find out – spend the day with us at Ilchester Museum and enjoy the presentations, lunch, coffee and tea for only £10 !
Apart from the tours and talks you will be very well looked after: lunch will be chilli and crusty bread or spicy chicken and vegetables and crumble or lemon meringue.
To book, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org., stating how many people are in your party, any special dietary needs, and your phone number.
