Roman Cavalry Exhibition

This event is now finished. Please visit our Events and Activities section to find out about other events which are coming soon.

The six month exhibition is a once in a lifetime opportunity for visitors to see a unique range of remarkable and finely decorated Roman cavalry objects including ornate helmets, armour and weapons on loan from national and international museums.  These will be shown alongside objects from museums across the Wall.

There will be dramatic re-enactment events across sites along the Wall and from July 2017, a specially commissioned piece of contemporary art celebrating the cavalry site will be on display at English Heritage’s Chesters Roman Fort and Museum.

On August bank holiday celebrate Flavinus Day at Hexham Abbey.
