It was another successful event at Stonea Camp as this year’s open family fun day was hailed a “very enjoyable day for all concerned”.
The event - which took place on Sunday, September 22 - aimed to take people back in time and show them what life was like under rule of the Romans.
On the site near March and Wimblington, the fun day was organised by Heritage, Culture and Community (HCC) Stonea and funded by Care Network.
Amanda Carlin, one of the organisers, said: "What an amazing day we had! Thank you so much to all our visitors and your positive feedback."
Community transport providers, FACT, arranged shuttle buses to take residents to the event, making it accessible for all.

"Feedback from this open day has been positive, our aim was to develop an event that was of interest to all ages, and with a good team on board, we seem to have achieved that goal.
