The front cover of the Romans Resource Pack (Burgh Castle). (© NCC)This Romans Resource Pack is designed to work within Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum history syllabus. It provides extension material for the Roman handling session provided by the Education Department at Time and Tide, Great Yarmouth. The pictures in this pack and information available online on the Norfolk Heritage Explorer website compliment and extend the topics covered in the museum session but can also be used as stand alone resources. This self-contained pack focuses on a Roman family living in Burgh Castle, a Roman fort just north of Great Yarmouth. Children get a chance to meet a member of this family at the handling session.
The Resource Pack provides details from the website, photographs and drawings from the paper archives held by Norfolk Landscape Archaeology and Time and Tide designed to help children develop an awareness of archaeological objects and how they can be used to understand the past. The pack also includes possible teaching activities and ideas for cross curricular working. The teaching activities are self-contained and all resources required are within the pack itself.
Images used in the pack can also be accessed in an online teacher's gallery for use on interactive whiteboards at: http://gallery.e2bn.org/gallery773.html
The pack is part of a series of Resource Packs linked to the National Curriculum available from Norfolk Landscape Archaeology.
