Telling the Jewry Wall Story

The Friends of Jewry Wall Museum in partnership with Leicester Arts & Museums Service are delivering a new HLF funded project to enable people to find out more about the Jewry Wall Roman remains and the history of the site.

The project will develop a new interactive mobile app that will enable visitors to learn about the significance of the archaeological remains and how the Roman baths complex would have worked. There will also be a version for younger visitors. Alongside the app, there will be new information panels replacing existing ones around the site, as well as improvements to the site in the form of new planting schemes, including an area of Roman medicinal plants.

The public will be able to find out about the project through a series of event days to be run later this year and they will be able to provide comments to feed into the development of the new resources. Further events will follow next year, where people will have the chance to see the improvements and try out the app.

A Roman Leicester trail leaflet will also be produced to guide City visitors around the key locations that would have been known to Leicester residents nearly two thousand years ago.

As the project develops we will be placing more information on this page about events and activities that you can get involved with.
