We kindly invite you to attend Roman creative workshops in the Ad Pirum Archaeological Park in Hrušica (Podkraj 100) that will take place on Saturday, 5 June 2021, between 10:00 and 13:00.


– production of a 3D model of the late Roman fort Ad Pirum in Hrušica,

– creating replicas of a Roman coin depicting the Emperor Constantius II. and

– creating Roman shields and swords.

In the workshop we will create a 3D model of the late Roman fort Ad Pirum in Hrušica, which was a part of the defence system claustra Alpium Iuliarum and represents the largest civil engineering accomplishment from the Roman period in Slovenia. We will also use a real Roman coin with the depiction of Emperor Constantius II. to imprint its image in the modelling mass and thus produce our own replica. The original coin can be seen on display in the permanent exhibition of the National Museum of Slovenia. Furthermore, we will take on the role of Roman soldiers as we make Roman military shields and swords. At the end of the workshops, we will be able to take the created products home with us! Finally, we will be able to test ourselves in various Roman mind games – in the game “How is a Roman soldier constructed?” we will get to know and find out what the different parts of Roman military equipment are called.

A real Roman soldier will keep us company at all times! In addition, we will be able to take a walk around the Ad Pirum Archaeological Park and visit the museum room to learn more about the claustra Alpium Iuliarum barrier system.

Event location: Ad Pirum Archaeological Park in Hrušica, Podkraj 100, 5273 Col.
