Unearthing Aquae Sulis – Life in a Roman Town

This session uses primary evidence to discover more about the day-to-day life of a Roman town with special relevance to Aquae Sulis, the Roman name for Bath. Included is a handling activity led by your Workshop Leader, using a combination of Roman artefacts and replicas to stimulate the child’s imagination and give a flavour of Roman life.

Using our Education space overlooking the Roman Great Bath, students will answer the questions: ‘What is archaeology and what does an archaeologist do? What is an artefact and what is a replica?’

Find out how the Romans used the Roman Baths through the artefacts they left behind with our Bathing handling session. There is the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ and create some Roman art with ‘Marvellous Mosaics’. To complete your Roman experience there is the opportunity to dress like a Roman in our ‘Togas and Tunics’ activity using authentic Roman-style clothing.
