Today’s website from the National Museum of Scotland provides visitors with interactive activities that explore Roman history.

Activities include: 

  • Land of the Romans – Using an interactive map, explore the land that the Roman Empire occupied in 150 AD.
  • Dress a Roman Soldier – Decide which garments and weapons were used by a legionary and an auxiliary soldier.
  • Build a Roman Fort – Add the buildings and walls to a Roman fort and discover the purpose of each and see some artifacts that might have been found in the buildings.
  • Latin Translator – Help translate a Latin inscription and learn some word meanings.

In addition to these easy-to-use interactives, there is a downloadable teachers’ pack with information and additional activities to dig deeper into Romans in Scotland. Please note that the activities in the teacher pack correlate to exhibits in the museum but parents can adapt for home use.

Today’s site makes a nice addition to your studies of the Roman Empire.
