Sum 1- Romans Rule

In this project we will be travelling back in time over 2000 years to the start of the Roman Empire when Caesar ruled Rome. We will be finding out what life would’ve been like in Roman times, especially if you were soldier. We will also learn all about the amazing things the Romans developed and how they impact on the way we live our lives today.

Have a look at the pictures below; do you know where they are or why they are linked to the Romans?

    Picture 1 is of Hadrian’s Wall. It was built by the Romans to keep the Scottish out of the Roman Empire.

    Picture 2 is Roman Baths. Romans enjoyed bathing. They believed bathing together was an important part of a healthy lifestyle. The had public baths in most towns.

    Picture 3 is the Colosseum in Rome. It is an Amphitheatre and was the biggest in the entire Roman Empire. It was mainly used for Gladiator Flights. It was built using stone and concrete and it could seat 50,000 people.

    Picture 4 is Mount Vesuvius. It an active volcano in Italy. In 79AD the eruption destroyed the Roman City of Pompeii. It is one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world as lots of people live very close to it.

    Picture 5 is Circus Maximus. It is an ancient Roman Chariot Racing Stadium located in Rome. Chariot Racing is a two wheeled cart pulled by horses. The Circus Maximus had 250,000 seats.

    Picture 6 is Pompeii. Pompeii was a Roman town in Italy, but was buried under volcanic ash and rock after Mount Vesuvius erupted. It was a forgotten city until many years later when it was rediscovered. People can go and visit it again today.
