A Roman Adventure in St Albans
Last week our fortuitous Year 7s got the chance to gets hands on experience of what life was like in Roman Britain when they visited the Verulamium Museum in St Albans.
They spent the day learning about how Romans had underfloor heating with their robust Hypocaust systems, saw mosaics, and learnt about their industrious daily life. They also got the chance to handle a plethora of real 2000 year old Roman artefacts varying from cooking pots to make up dispensers. There was also a strange "sponge on a stick" object which turned out to be an old version of toilet paper...but luckily for the Year 7s it was just a replica as the originals would have had a very finite life span!
