Beau Street Hoard stories

As part of our Beau Street Hoard project we have been working with MA Writing for Young People students from Bath Spa University.  They have written four short stories based on the remarkable hoard of 17, 577 silver Roman coins which were found in Bath in 2007. The coins span the period from 32BC – 274AD and were found in eight separate money bags.

Ella-Rose's model of the Roman Baths

Ella-Rose and her family recently visited the Roman Baths and this inspired Ella-Rose to create a model of the Roman Baths, complete with people in suitable attire made out of fimo! We think it is great and thought you might like to see it.
