After lots of hard work we have completed our comprehension project. You were able to Students will be able to:
– Interpret texts, documents, and other forms of evidence, in their historical context.

When the Romans came to Britain they brought their way of life with them. Over time, the people of Britain and the Romans mixed. The Britons began to live the Roman lifestyle and the Romans took on local customs.
The Romans built new towns. These were often protected by walls and in there you could find: houses, shops, meeting spaces, workshops, temples and bathhouses.
They also built grand country houses called ‘villas‘. These had many rooms, some with beautifully painted walls, mosaic floors and even central heating.
