On Wednesday 24th September, Caradoc Class went to visit Crofton Roman Villa. First we had a talk from an Archaeologist, who told us about the discovery of the Villa in 1988. She also told us some Latin words like tessera and hypocaust!
We split into two groups, some of us made mosaics. Some of us did a brass rubbing. After, we swapped over!
Next the lady told us about Roman rubbish, and how interesting it was – you could find out how they lived and what they ate – NO POTATOES!
Four children got to dress up as Romans.
Finally, before returning back to school we looked at some artefacts and drew them.
We learnt a lot about the Romans and their treasures.
