In pictures: Lindum Colonia Day

Celebrating our past: The first ever Lindum Colonia Day celebrated Lincoln’s Roman heritage.

The first ever Lindum Colonia Day was held on Saturday, May 17 to celebrate Lincoln’s Roman heritage.

A Roman camp was set up in the grounds of Lincoln Castle, with military patrols through the city and battle demonstrations.

Children could also excavate a ‘skeleton’ and use a digital microscope to investigate historic artefacts with Bishop Grosseteste University at St Paul in the Bail.

Emma Tatlow, Visit Lincoln Partnership Manager, said: “It has been 1,600 years since the Romans left the city, yet their marks can still be seen today.

“We felt it was important to recognise Lincoln’s heritage with a designated day.”
