An exciting new workshop to help children learn about Romans, developed by Nottingham Trent University students, is being held at Bassetlaw Museum.

The new activities will focus on ‘Roman Masters and Slaves’.

Children will be able to take part in an archaeological dig where they will uncover domestic Roman objects and find out more about them.

They will also have the opportunity to make a Roman disc brooch (KS1) or a Roman coiled pot (KS2).

The session will link to National Curriculum areas of History, English and Design Technology.

Student representative, Sarah Ellery, said: “Supporting a local heritage site and developing their educational resources is an exciting time.

“Coming from a heritage background, learning more about what goes on ‘behind the scenes’ at museums has been a real eye opener.

“The course is practical and insightful and will be of great benefit in seeking employment in the museums and heritage sector.”

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and priority will be given to school groups who have not visited the site in the past three years.

The workshops will be held throughout February and March. For more visit www.nccl.org.uk/2015/12/free-heritage-education-sessions/
