What was Roman Epsom and Ewell like? How did British society change under the Roman Empire?  Discover how life adjusted to the arrival of Roman power as a small native village became a busy roadside town. Learn how the building of a road brought a new world of ideas, food, pottery, trade and strangers to the area. Hear tales of the Roman underworld, sacred springs and of sacrifices, sealing deep sacred shafts full of gifts to the Gods.  Learn about what has been uncovered in recent excavations, and see and handle Roman artefacts to discover the skills of ancient artisans.
