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.

    Take a walk in York

I did my first Degree in York. There are some interesting Roman Ghost stories in the Treasurers house.


Roman Shields

Why not make your very own Roman shield.

More to books…

Move over, Horrible Histories, a library find, Romans by Philip Ardagh is literally “packed with facts and fun!”

Just kidding, I LOVE Horrible Histories

Ruthless Romans by Terry Deary

Also, I am eagerly anticipating the new Horrible Histories Movie about Romans this year!

This is a library find, but I love it. For GCSE History, I made the Roman Villa. Roman Villa by Gillian Clements.

Where would you like to take your little one?

Show me your shields!
