Roman make-up

After 15 years at HM Tower of London, the City of London Archaeological Society (COLAS) will present our popular hands-on displays and activities at the Museum of London Docklands for the first time this year. From pipes and pots to coins and bones, our handling collections offer an insight into London finds with an emphasis on the fascinating Thames foreshore. Favourite activities for adults and children include making a mosaic, playing a Roman board game and dressing up as a Roman Briton.

COLAS Volunteers

Dressing a Roman Londoner

Our outreach events are only possible thanks to the generous assistance of our many volunteers. COLAS stands are staffed entirely by members of the Society. No special skills are required and there’s always plenty to do. All we ask is a firm commitment for the least amount of time that you can offer, so we can be sure of enough hands on the day to guarantee the event. It’s a fun day out, and gives pleasure to hundreds and hundreds of visitors, so please join us if you can!
