Romans Revealed June 10, 2013

Posted by admin in : History , trackback

Romans Revealed has been produced by the Department of Archaeology at the University of Reading, in collaboration with the Runnymede Trust (an educational race equality charity) and children’s author Caroline Lawrence (author of The Roman Mysteries). The website provides a teaching resource for children to learn about diversity in Roman Britain, and is particularly aimed at Key Stage 2. Children can learn about life in Roman Britain through four individuals, and can explore them either through ‘excavating’ their graves or following short stories written by Caroline Lawrence. Through videos, they can also hear from the research team, and learn about the work archaeologists do. A teaching resource pack and activity sheets can be downloaded from the website, and used in the class-room or for home learning.
