Workshop outline

This exciting story world adventure takes the children through a portal to a Roman settlement, found on the site of an archaeological dig, whilst searching to retrieve an item accidentally left by a curious archaeologist.

The children find themselves caught up in the tensions between Boudica and the Roman legions. They will be asked to decide if they want to support Boudica or the Roman way of life. This workshop includes many activities that allow students to handle original Roman objects and engage in activities in role as a team of archaeologists.

The historical concept of continuity and change run throughout this workshop. Children will use a range of historical sources to learn about the Ancient Romans.
