I am literally obsessed with Roman history to the point that I think I was Roman in a past life!
I went to Hadrian’s wall to do research for my chapter book which will be an adventure story for children in key stage 1. I am currently looking for representation for my children’s books.
But you don’t have to go to Hadrian’s wall to help your child become excited about Roman history.
- Bath at the Romans Baths in Bath*
*sadly, you are no longer allowed to go in the actual water.
- Get your youngster in a fluster for Chester
Visit the Dewa Roman experience (I have taken a school group here when I was teaching in Manchester, I highly recommend it) or simply walk around this amazing city as there are ruins everywhere for you to explore, especially the amphitheatre.
- Muse in the Museum of London
- Take a walk in York
I did my first Degree in York. There are some interesting Roman Ghost stories in the Treasurers house.
Why not make your very own Roman shield.
