Looking forward to joining in the Roman Day in Baldock on 14 March. It’s part of the North Hertfordshire Book Festival . They’re keeping up a fine tradition, as it seems the Romano-British inhabitants of Baldock were a literary lot who enjoyed a trip to the theatre. As far as I’m aware the theatre itself hasn’t been found, but fragments of a tragic actor’s mask dating back to Roman times have turned up.
This is a free event and there should be plenty of activities for all the family (and stray authors) to join in. Writing is a bit of a static activity but I’m being stationed next to a demonstration of Roman cooking, so may be laying on my own demonstration of modern eating.
