Fun Family Day at the Antonine Wall
Saturday, 25 June
11:00 - 16:00
By Jasmine and Thistle and the Rediscovering the Antonine Wall Project
Almost 2000 years ago, skilled archers from what is now Syria lived along the Antonine Wall, the northernmost frontier of the Roman Empire.
Today, families from modern-day Syria and other parts of the world, with their own skills and strengths, have also come to call places local to the Wall their home.
Scottish and Syrian women’s group Jasmine and Thistle invites you to a fun family day at the Antonine Wall, sharing delicious food (both local and global) and stories from the past and present.
Our event will include:
- Syrian Storytelling for Children
- A Picnic of the Past and Present
- The opportunity to share songs, music or poetry
- Clay making activities
- Prizes for the family
- Guided meditation
- Museum object handling and lots more!
