Roman Sessions at Tullie House

Roman Detective Role-Play for KS 2

An interesting and fun way to look at the Roman displays at Tullie House Museum.

Carlisle (Luguvalium) is a Roman city and fort.  It has been discovered that insecure citizens are hiding their valuables and getting ready to run, probably because they are worried about attacks from Celtic tribes.

Your class is given the task of discovering whom these sacks belong to.  Your class changes into Roman or Celtic costume and are split into groups.  Each group is given a sack which has been ‘discovered’.  In the sack are a number of objects, which belong to someone from Roman times.  It is up to the group to play detectives and find these ‘objects’ in the museum displays and decide who owned the sack.
