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, stating how many people are in your party, any special dietary needs, and your phone number.
