Crockery-stories: Making pots in the Roman way

31 March 2024 | 1.00 PM - 2.30 PM | 3.00 PM - 4.30 PM

As on a real archaeological excavation, we handle original 2000 years old sherds and ask the questions: What did the whole vessel look like? How did the Romans use it? We find out how Roman dishes were made on the potter's wheel, put together broken beakers and pots, and model our own bowl of clay.

Start: 13.00
Duration: approx. 1.5 hours
Age: Children from 6 years of age.
Meeting point: Museum reception
CHF 16.–/CHF 8.– (including entrance tickets for the museum)

Institution

Off to visit the Roman period! The largest archaeological park in Switzerland offers more than thirty surprising, unique and exciting sights including the most impressive Roman theatre north of the Alps, the atmospheric Roman house and on display in the museum the largest collection of late antique silver.

Events in the Roman theatre
An ambience reminiscent of 1800 years ago: the tiers of the impressive theatre in Augusta Raurica at the time would have been packed with up to 10,000 spectators. Today, there is seating for only 2,000 visitors. The atmosphere, however, is still beyond compare.

The largest Roman festival in Switzerland takes place in Augusta Raurica annually on the last weekend in August. The colourful festival is well known far and wide and attracts thousands of visitors delighted to be transported back to the Roman period. One of the secrets of its success is its unique atmosphere. Surrounded by authentic monuments and entertaining spectacles, visitors learn about modern scientific research presented in an easily comprehensible manner.

The next Roman festival will take place on 6 & 7 August 2022.
