Cool clay days at Newport Roman Villa

There are some cool clay days happening this half term at Newport Roman Villa, with a range of activities to keep your little ones occupied.

On the two activity days during half term, the villa, at Cypress Road, Newport, will be open as usual for visitors to see the remains, Roman bath suite and the garden, if you don’t want to take part in the clay activities.

No booking is required, the entry fee is £1 on each activity day and includes admission and all activities.

Knucklebones game clay day
Taking place on Monday 18 February between 10am and 3pm, you can make your own ‘knucklebones’ game to take home, as well as finding out more about the games you can play with them.

The games were usually played with pig or sheep knucklebones – hence the nickname.

Crazy clay coins
Did you know Roman coins have been found here on the Isle of Wight? Come and find out more on Wednesday 20 February, between 10am and 3pm.

You can also make your very own replica Roman coin to take home with you.
