Discover how people learnt to live under Roman rule 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, giving locals a chance to see the world.

Learn something of their beliefs. Hear tales of the Roman underworld, sacred springs and sacrifices, sealing deep shafts full of gifts to the gods.

Learn about what was uncovered during a recent dig, even more strange than earlier discoveries! Archaeology adds to our knowledge, such as how their food waste gives us clues as to what they ate and how they butchered their meat.

Discover a dark side to Roman Ewell – slavery!

Where did they hide their money in times of trouble?
