Gladiators: A Cemetery of Secrets - A Touring Exhibition Brought to You by The JORVIK Group at Bishop Auckland Town Hall
In its first exhibition since the refurbishment, from Saturday 29 May visitors to the town hall will also be able to see Gladiators: A Cemetery of Secrets exhibition; a touring exhibition from the JORVIK Group of Attractions, operators of the JORVIK Viking Centre in York.
The exhibition will host a fascinating display of archaeological finds, including the skeletal remains of two men which were unearthed in a York Roman-age cemetery in 2004.
Visitors will discover more about the eighty burials which were unearthed at the site and explore whether the two skeletons are the remains of soldiers, criminals, slaves or gladiators through scientific analysis of cut marks, an animal bite and blunt force trauma to the bone.
The skeletons will be at Bishop Auckland Town Hall Gallery from 29 May until 30 August, allowing visitors to learn more about Roman life and the mystery of these men’s lives.
Immerse yourself in a fascinating journey though Roman life, with this captivating exhibition that includes activities and a short film suitable for both adults and children.
We will be operating a one-way system, number of visitors will be monitored and we are following Covid-19 safety guidance.
