Explore Roman Beauty Trends & Treatments At Chedworth

This Mother’s Day weekend we will be exploring the beauty trends and treatments popular in Roman Britain.

Visit Chedworth Roman Villa near Cheltenham and find out how the beauty standards of the time reflected people’s wealth, health, and status in society. From curious cosmetics to painful plucking, we will be investigating beauty ideals and the treatments used by the Villa’s residents.

You will be able to chat to historical characters and find out what ingredients were used in skincare remedies, what make-up and hair trends were being copied from Rome and how the fascinating bathing process unfolded. You might even make comparisons with the modern day and wonder whether we are that different from our Roman ancestors.
