Hail Caesar, we're off on a Roman adventure. You'll find information on Gladiators, weaponry and the army, mosaics, daily life and images of artefacts. There's a heady selection of top quality links that support work on Celts and Celtic culture including information on Boudicca's revolt. There's not mush-room for much else in this topic!
A super exhibition of artefacts. The Roman shield and brooch will be a real talking point of any Romans lesson. Also includes Dinosaurs, Bronze Age, Axe Head, Roman Brooch, Saxon Axe, Viking comb, Medieval Tile, Mayflower and HMS Victory.
A good site for KS2 teachers - adapt images and text and you will have a good KS2 resource. Features the main aspects of a wealthy Roman villa including Vestibulum, Fauces, Atrium, Ala, Tablinum and Peristylium.
We like this site for its simple images and text with plenty of links to other great sites. Lots here on being a soldier and the end of Roman occupation. For how long have we been looking for a map like this? It works, it's clear, it's great.
Discover what it must have been like to use the Baths as a Roman. Play this cute interactive game to learn more.
Time lines, activities and 3D animations come together to bring you a cracker of a site.
Character portraits and some good examples of questions to ponder. Great animated site.
Interactive animation of how a Celtic Roundhouse was constructed. Great resource for "Houses in the Past" and for the "Romans".
We have decided to place this link here as it is best suited to this topic. Learn about the Celts using these animations and activities.
This website guides children through the processes of uncovering the past through archeology.
Good mix of text and pictures that would suit independent research in upper juniors. Free but from a commercial provider of other resources.
This web-book includes some lovely cartoons and plenty to click on and find out about. Lots of gory details here. Kids will love it. It is admittedly a fairly ancient site (2002!) but it still works - click the tiny 'Next' button at the RH of each page.
Forts, baths and after the Romans are but some of the themed photographs. Lots of additional details here to support the images.
Super clip-art for any Roman style project.
There's more to Celts than the Iceni, find out about how each of the tribes lived before the Romans, by clicking on the map. Would be great for an ICT database!
Marvel at these fine example with added information to support teaching.
Design your own using this website. Simple but fun. Suits art units too. Click the blue 'Next' button to get going. Requires the Flash player to work correctly - if you don't see the Roman soldier, you haven't got Flash.
Good quality images of Roman artefacts. To get around the whole site, click the 'Theme' (Ceremony and Celebration, Childhood and Games, etc) then choose from the small row of sub-themes that appear below the main theme icons: Romans, Medieval, Tudors, Victorians, 20th Century - Present, World.
The quality of the images is excellent and the site is well worth looking through.
What is the forum? and What happened in AD 60? are some of the questions which this site aims to answer.
A terrific range of high quality, illustrated recipes from Roman Britain. Includes lentil casserole (pottage), libum and milk-fed snails!
Lots of unusual artefacts from armour to leather underpants!
Type "Roman" in the search box and then "search within this section" for whatever you wish to find "war", "coins" etc..
Some facts about Roman Numerals including the rules as to their use. There is also link to a game of hangman where you convert Numerals into modern and vice versa. It starts with easy numbers and gradually gets more complex as you get more points.
A fantastic overview which has lots of interesting details and information presented in a very child friendly way.
A great site. Lovely images, the text is more suited to upper KS2. Includes information on - where they came from, their gods, clothes, farming and why they invaded the UK.
A site which seeks to find out how we know, what we know and the legacy of the Romans. The pictures by children make this a very useable site that children love to use.
A good overview of Roman settlement. Includes some reasonable time-line information that could form the basis of a note-taking activity. Has sections on A Roman Soldier, Tour the Roman Fort, Tour the Caledonian Village, and see the Caledonian Warrior.
We love this one for the clickable timeline and great dress a soldier game.
Image close-ups of Roman artefacts and editable worksheets in MS Word format to use with them.
