More than 40 visitors got to know their Roman roots as they learned about fashion, food and hygiene.

Towcester Museum in White Horse Yard has staged the first of its free live history lessons which are taking place every Saturday throughout August.

Characters from Towcester’s Roman past spoke to children about the types of games residents used to play as well as what life was like in the army.

Organiser Martin Johns said: “Towcester has a wealth of history, not just from the Roman period, so it’s great for children to learn about their heritage and get to know their local roots.” The lessons, which are supported by the National Lottery, take place at the museum between 11am-2pm. There is no need to pre-book.
