The University's community open days

On our stall at the University’s community day May Fest (now renamed Wonder) we have featured:

  • colouring and drawing activities 
  • interactive story-telling focusing on Aeneas’ escape from Troy at the end of the Trojan War
  • a Roman hair salon

Once people had had their hair done, they could call into the Digital Transformations Hub (DTH) to dress up and be inserted into an ancient scene or onto an ancient coin - see the DTH blog...
