Year 6 have enjoyed a fantastic day today learning even more about our Roman ancestors. We have specifically learnt about Roman Aylsham by looking at geophysical pictures of a site near Woodlands Nursery- right on our doorstep! Aylsham Heritage Centre helped us become archaeologists for the morning by cleaning and categorising artefacts found on the site! We found so many different things: finger prints, animal markings, smoke damage and a good few bits of roof tiles. We also learnt Latin from a Roman soldier, Planned how many whole roof tiles needed for various roof sizes and ate our Roman Feast prepared by the slaves!!
A special THANKS to the Heritage centre in Aylsham for showing us these incredible finds and allowing us to discover what life in our town might have been like so long ago!
