Date: 8th April 2017 - 10th September 2017
2017 marks the 1,900th anniversary of Hadrian becoming Emperor. In this special year, sites across Hadrian’s Wall will host spectacular events and remarkable exhibitions from Maryport in the west to South Shields in the east.
At Tullie House discover how the Cavalry was organised and the crucial role it played in Carlisle, across the wall and throughout the whole Roman Empire. The exhibition brings together remarkable and finely decorated parade armour and helmets, on loan from individuals and international museums, with fascinating finds from Tullie House’s own archaeology collection.
Interactive activities and an immersive film display bring the story of the Hadrian's Cavalry to life for visitors of all ages.
Join us on Saturday 8 April for a day of hands on Roman inspired activities including crafts and object handling as well as the chance to meet a real Roman soldier at the Hadrian's Cavalry Opening Day
