In the first of our new history series ‘Who lived in a house like this?’, we take you inside a typical Roman villa in Britain
Our fantastically illustrated, 3D Interactive resource, ‘Who lived in a house like this?’ opens the roof on who lived in the house during Roman Britain.
Flavius, the villa’s owner, introduces children to his home and encourages them to take a look around. As they ‘remove’ the roof, they can ‘zoom’ in on each room to see it up close and read more about what went on inside. From the food stored in the larder and cooked in the kitchen, to the separate bathhouse, children will learn more about how the Romans lived.
As well as the detailed 3D view, there is also a floorplan of the villa, also available as a free activity sheet.
