Centurion Marcus wants young recruits!

Our geocaching minifigure is off exploring the Roman Empire, and while he’s away he needs some young recruits to guard Epiacum Roman Fort for him.

Are your kids up for the task?

Borrow some weapons from the chest in our car park, and pick up a Clue trail leaflet from the rack, and you’re all set to patrol the fort, answering tricky challenges as you go.

And if you’re ready for advanced training, try to find the Epiacum View Geocache, and swap a piece of treasure while you’re here.

Marcus says:


Many individuals and organisations are involved with the management of Epiacum. We would particularly like to thank the following: Heritage Lottery Fund, North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Partnership, Historic England, and Natural England
