Life in Roman Britain - Meet Emperor Claudius & Boudica
Interactive, drama-history workshop with costume characters.
In this interactive workshop, our experienced practitioners will bring the characters of the Roman Emperor Claudius and Boudica, Queen of the Iceni, to life for your students.
With full costume and an “in-and-out-of-character” style, our practitioners will help your students to discover first-hand the changes that the Roman Empire brought to Britain, both for better and worse. Your students will:
Join Emperor Claudius as he expands the Roman Empire into Britain
Learn about the "romanisation" of Britain by recreating and comparing Britain before and after the Roman invasion.
Help Boudica fight against the Romans by acting out elements of her rebellion.

'A very stimulating and informative session. Even the reluctant/reserved pupils were enthused and confident enough to join in. Thank you.'
