The Lunt Roman Fort is the only reconstructed fort in Britain. Built in 60 AD, this turf and timber fort also consists of a granary, workshops, headquarters, barracks, commander's house and gyrus (for the training of horses).

Aimed at Key Stage 2 children, the school visits here are supplemented by an online resource pack, which provides background information as well as activities to do before and after your visit. Children take part in Following in the Footsteps of Soldiers, a 2-hour tour and talk where they can learn about the lives of soldiers, the function of Roman armour and weaponry and have a full tour around the fort and its buildings.
