In More Detail…

Let us take you back to the times when the Roman empire was at its height. We will teach the students who was in power and who was the most important. They will find out about how Roman people lived and what they did for entertainment – including having a good gossip at the local baths.

Gods were an important part of society. Time permitting, we will introduce the students to a selection of Gods. They will find out who was the most powerful and who was the most useful. The students will find out about the poor city of Pompeii and the fate which befell it.

Crime was rife in Roman times. The students will find out what kinds of things went on, and more importantly, what was the punishment. They will take a look at some Roman laws. They were one of the first groups of people to write their laws down so that they could be recorded.  A lot of the laws created by the Romans are still in use in society today.

No Roman workshop would be complete, without a look at the Roman Army. We will teach the students what makes a good soldier, and put them to the test to see if they would have made the cut – or maybe they will just receive their punishment of decimation!
