Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums – Arbeia Roman Fort

Revolting Britons vs The Ruling Romans

With the aim of engaging and inspiring their audience, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums asked us to create a family-friendly trail around Arbeia Roman Fort that explored the differences between the indigenous tribes and the ruling Romans. We illustrated a range of characters who pop up at different points around the fort. With an injection of humour, the characters teach visitors about the differences between how the Britons and the Romans lived all those years ago.

The fort was shortlisted in the North East Tourist Awards for Small Visitor Attraction of the Year at the start of 2020 and it is wonderful to be a part of their success.
