Aquila is based on an ancient board-game. which the Trust found during excavations at Stanway near Colchester in the 1990s – come and play! It is a fun strategic game for two players and it is addictive… Come and play it under the supervision of Alex, who created Aquila. (We can provide a number of boards. Age 6+. Children must be accompanied by an adult.)
