On Wednesday 18th September, Wensleydale class enjoyed a Roman adventure to Housesteads Fort and Vindolanda Museum. We explored the fort and imagined how it would have looked 2000 years ago before enjoying lunch overlooking the Cumbrian hills. We were even treated to a fly-by from genuine Roman chinook helicopters.
At Vindolanda, we met some genuine archaeologists conducting a dig on the site. They showed us real Roman pottery that had been dug up that morning. At the museum, the amazingly preserved shoes were spectacular and so was the drone’s eye view of the whole site.
We’d like to give a big thanks to all our parent helpers who came along and well done to all the children who were curious, engaged and resilient climbing up the big hill to the fort.
