This Educational session is designed for Years 4, 5 and 6.
It is perfect for bringing to life the topic of the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain and for students to gain knowledge about the archaeologists who undertook the original excavations.
This workshop explores Roman Verulamium through handling genuine artefacts to build a picture of daily life in the town. Students will roleplay as archaeologists through investigating a variety of aspects of Roman daily life. They will consider the similarities, differences, continuity and changes between Roman times and their own lives.
- Students will gain an understanding of Roman daily life at Verulamium
- Compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the modern and Roman worlds
- Develop students’ enquiry and analysis skills through artefact investigation
Our Educational sessions run from Monday - Friday and are frequently paired with a self-guided tour of Verulamium Museum.
Bookings are now open for the academic year 2023-24.
You can use our free online resources about the Romans to prepare your classes for the trip or as follow up activities to embed their learning.

We had a really lovely time. The kids were so excited to see what we have been learning about ‘in real life’ and so close to home! One of the children said it was the best day of her life and that it made her realise that she wants to be a historian. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. Thank you so much for making it such a special visit.
