We looked at granaries and talked about how the Romans kept food cool without electricity.
We picked herbs (which was invited by the sign I might add!) and crushed them in the mortar, then played some pretending to be ill and needing herb medicines.
We also looked around the barracks and commanding officer's house and the museum. We marked Arbeia, London and Rome on a Roman Empire map and looked at Hadrian's wall.
This is definitely a place we will visit again. It is great that it ties into a huge historical topic such as the Roman Empire yet also is so local and specific to our area.
