It’s the 1st Century AD in Britain and the Roman Invaders are here to stay! Should the young Britons decide to fight or adapt to new Roman ways?

A proud Roman lady and a legionary soldier will spend the day with your children and help them understand how to survive now that the Romans are here!

With authentic costumes and numerous artefacts we use role-play, hands-on activities, games and drama to fully immerse children in Roman and Celtic ways, domestic life as well as military.

What changes have the Romans brought? How do you behave at a Roman banquet? What is it like to march in the Roman Army? How heavy is that armour – and much more!

  • We offer a FULL day of content including:IMG_2707
  • A Soldier’s Life
  • Roman Childhood and Games
  • Craft activities
  • Roman Schoolroom
  • Bathing and Slavery
  • Military Drill
  • Roman Banquet
  • Drama: The Rebel and the Emperor (play performed by children)

” A fantastic, fun-filled, knowledge enhancing day. The children were engaged and enjoying every minute”
Cavendish Primary School, Manchester

“I just wanted to thank you for a fantastic day. The Roman visitors were exceptional and looked amazing! The children learned an awful lot, the activities were varied, fast paced and plentiful. The resources were excellent, the presentation interesting and the children were active and learning all day. I couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you so much – it has really kick-started our learning!”
Rawmarsh St Joseph Primary, Rotherham

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to both you and Andy! You both remained professional and flexible throughout the day. The children had a fantastic day and came in yesterday retelling us their favourite parts of the day and have done some fantastic follow up work already! I’ve recommended you to the rest of the school.”
