Carlisle City Council is establishing a design team to deliver a new £1m gallery to recreate life in Roman times within Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery.
The project comprises the creation of a new 4,000 sq ft Roman Gallery within Tullie House that will show what life was like in Roman Carlisle and along Hardian's Wall.
The initial design was developed by Redman Design and is based around five narrative themes such as military, building the wall and the position of Carlisle on the edge of Europe's largest empire.
The project will be complemented by public realm works and interpretation on and adjacent to Hadrian's Wall Path. Concept designs for this element have been developed by Landscape Architects TEP.
The project is expected to be finished by summer 2010.
