Park in the Past Project
Park in the Past is an exciting project which will enable visitors to step back into the environment of the First Century AD and to visit a working Roman Fort and an Iron Age Farm. The site is located just 10 miles from Chester, near Caergwrle in Flintshire. You can follow progress on the project website, or on Facebook.
Roman Fort Project
Part of Park in the Past is the Roman Fort Project, established as a not for profit social enterprise with charitable status. It seeks establish a national centre for excellence, experimentation and experiential learning in Roman and iron age life, culture and environment. This set within a 1st century environment including flora fauna and wildlife. It will include the ongoing reconstruction of a period Roman fort, iron age farmstead. Applying ancient agricultural methods, crops and domesticated livestock to that era. Once the project secures the land further information will be available.
