Posterngate Tour

We are excited to include a visit to Posterngate within our new Hidden Lindum Colonia project. The project will eventually showcase twelve sites of Roman Lincoln and form a digital and real tour of the city.

The Posterngate site was uncovered during excavations in the 1970s. It was a gateway that gave access to Roman Lincoln from the river. It is widely thought that the route was used by merchants and traders when Lincoln’s waterside was a bustling port.

For Summer 2022 we are excited to bring you our new guided tours of Posterngate -

 

1.       Guided tours will begin with a talk about the Hidden Lindum Colonia project and set the scene for Posterngate in the main gallery (10-15 minutes)

2.       We will then walk to Posterngate on Saltergate (5 minutes away) to enter the hidden gateway

3.       A talk at the Posterngate site (30 minutes)

4.       Guided tours will end at the Posterngate site

Please note -

The tours involve walking from the museum to the site across two roads.

Posterngate is situated 5 metres below ground level and can only be reached down a stone staircase.
