This on-gallery session explores the lifestyle and culture of Roman Manchester and is delivered by a PhD student from the University of Manchester. Using the objects on our Ancient Worlds gallery students will explore typical Roman buildings and their uses, examining the evidence we have for different types of activity in Roman Manchester. Students will be encouraged to interpret objects and assess their varying uses by particular people from the time.
This session can also be extended to form our KS3/4 Ancient History workshop.
- Gain an understanding of Roman Manchester.
- Explore the daily lives of British and Roman people of this time.
- Examine objects to determine what they can tell us about the period of Roman occupation in Britain.
This entire workshop takes place on our Discovering Archaeology Gallery.
