Romans in the New Forest

4 February 2021

Verity Kerins, our Learning and Engagement Officer at St Barbe has been helping out with parents having to home school during lockdown via our Facebook page. She has been investigating the boxes that she would usually use for School visits and making short videos looking at Romans in the New Forest. Verity introduces artifacts from the St Barbe collection, many of which are part of our 'handling collection' - so called as children would usually get to hold and explore the artifacts themselves. This time children get to see them close up via video!

There are currently seven videos on Romans in the New Forest with some really interesting facts which will capture the imagination of primary school children. The videos (available here)  then suggest a short extension to expand the subject. 

Verity is now working on the next set of videos 'Stone Age to Iron Age' check out our Facebook page for the lastest news.
