Dd1 (8) has to do a project on the Romans.
So far she/we have decided to do Famous Romas and thats it.

Any good websites or places to visit (brum) would eb great. Particularly want piccies, postcards or something but are drawing blanks.

There's a Roman road and some other bits and pieces in Sutton Park - they have leaflets with pictures in the visitor centre.

There's also the remains of a fort at Wall - which is about a mile away from Shenstone railway station. They have a small but interesting museum there as well.

Lunt Roman fort out at Bagington (near Coventry) is worth a visit as well, if you can get there.

Oooh thanks. Not sure we should do famous romans as there is info on them but not many piccies and stuff for her to use.

Choices are ...

Roman soldiers
Roman baths
Roman clothing
Roman cities
Why the romans came to britain
Life in britain before the roman invasion
What the romans did for britain
Roman roads
Roman inventions
Famous romans

Then it says theses are just a few examples, feel free to choose a different area.......

What do you think ??

It's ok, just found it, the town gate entrance, park road.

irrigation, education,sanitation,(sorry monty python fan!)

You think Alexsmum ? See I know i'll end up doing most of the work so it has to be easy for me LOL.


Think I will take a visit to the visitor centre in sutton park and see what they have the most info on, library too.

How about the Roman legacy - things that we still have around now that the Romans invented/brought to Britain, like cement, central heating etc

I had a quick Google, and some of these look useful:

Have you tried the Horrible Histories books? They do two books on Romans. My 9-yo dd loves them - the info just leaps off the page and into her head. Not boring in the slightest.

We cooked a Roman meal once. It was fun. We're going to do it again.
