Year 4 History – Roman Artefacts

Feb 5, 2024History

Year 4 had a great time exploring Roman artefacts, maps and information about Hadrian’s Wall. We discovered that John Clayton was a bit of a hero to our local Roman history, spending his money in Victorian times on buying up the land around the wall so no one damaged it (or even took the stones away for their own buildings!) and preserving the artefacts found near the wall. We explored different aspects of life for the people who lived in and around the forts on the wall and thought about how different it was to life today.
