Explore Roman beauty trends and treatments this Mother's Day

Step back in time and immerse yourself in all things Roman beauty.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This Mother’s Day we will be exploring the beauty trends and treatments popular in Roman Britain. Come and find out how the beauty standards of the time reflected people’s wealth, health, and status in society. From curious cosmetics to painful plucking, we will be investigating beauty ideals and the treatments used by the Villa’s residents. You will be able to chat to historical characters and find out what ingredients were used in skincare remedies, what make-up and hair trends were being copied from Rome and how the fascinating bathing process unfolded. You might even make comparisons with the modern day and wonder whether we are that different from our Roman ancestors.
