An exhibition that offers a glimpse of what day to day life was like in Roman Britain is now open.

Occupation: Cumbria Under Roman Rule at Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery in Carlisle shows what life was like along Hadrian’s Wall and how Carlisle grew to be an important production centre in the Roman Empire’s Northern Frontier.

The exhibition also shows how Tullie House learned this information with a look at the archaeological process.

There are "loads of exciting objects" on display, according to Tullie House, from huge, inscribed stones to delicate brooches, and charming illustrations of the diverse people of Roman Cumbria by Flaroh Illustration.

It’s free for annual ticket holders and included with £10 general admission.
