On Monday 6th May
, Fishbourne Roman Palace is holding a day of exploration focusing on the most famous aspect of the site – the stunning mosaic floors. Mosaic Mayhem! gives visitors of all ages a chance to find out more about mosaics, how they are designed and made, and to try some mosaic making for themselves. There will be guided tours, a chance to handle original tesserae from the Roman mosaics and demonstrations of mosaic making with an opportunity to make your own mosaic using a range of different materials including an edible one! Younger visitors can make an edible mosaic using sweet treats and there will also be a chance to dress in Roman costume and find out how a mosaic floor would feel underfoot! Everyone will be able to add a piece to our giant mosaic design which will grow throughout the day.
