Christ The King RC Primary School

Roman Britain

In this unit, the children will learn about the Roman invasion of Britain and its impact on the lives of the Celts. They will consider whether the Roman settlement was a positive experience for all involved, and explore the long-term legacy of the invasion. They will use a variety of sources of evidence to investigate the topic, including visual sources of artefacts (the Vindolanda Tablets) and archaeological sites (Hadrian’s Wall). The children will analyse written sources from writers such as Tacitus and Dio Cassius and consider why they interpreted events as they did.
