St Albans Tour Guides are pleased to announce that they will be bringing the Roman Soldier to Verulamium Museum this autumn. On Saturday 26th August, Laurentius Calvus Petronius
was in the museum, to tell us all about his life as a soldier, what it was like to be in the army, and why he chose to settle here at Verulamium. He will be dressed up in his uniform and weaponry, and he will also show us what he keeps in his satchel.
His friend Bernardus Julius Frontinus
will be appearing on Saturday 21st October. On both dates, the performances are at 2:00 and 3:00 p.m., and last for 30 minutes. These appearances will have particular appeal to primary school- aged children, but adults will find them interesting as well.
