The Romans are coming...

Roman workshop for primary schools with armour demonstration


It's the end of the Iron Age - how did life change for the Celts of Britain after the Claudian invasion of 43AD...? 

Full day workshops run for around 3 hours and focus on the Roman Invasion of Britain, why they came here, what they did when they got here and what they left us with. We bring enough costumes for everyone (no need to ask the parents!) plus a whole host of activities and props to immerse your students in the Roman era.

For up to 90 children.

Invasion!

We look at  Julius Caesar's invasion of Britain in 55BC .  Noisy, fun, involves everyone and comes complete with missiles

Latin Lesson

Literacy the Roman way!

 We bring wax tablets, a stern slave teacher and  a rather horrible scourge...

The Roman Pantomime
The Romans are famous for replicating the sights, sounds and lifestyle of Rome in every country that they conquered. We 'build' an amphitheatre in your school, so that the children can take part in a hilarious version of one of Rome's great inventions.
