Roman Tours UK

School Trips

Home / School Workshops

Roman Tours bring life to the story of the Roman invasion of Britain and the legacy of an Empire nearly 2000 years ago.

Dressed as a 1st Century Roman Soldier (other character roles available), we engage pupils through curriculum-relevant role play, character acting, questioning and activities, providing a unique and dynamic educational experience around the period of the Roman invasion and settlement of Britain. Our costumes and equipment, are exact copies of real artefacts and equipment found through archaeology investigation, to ensure our representation is as accurate as possible
