This half-term we will be learning about the Romans. The Romans came to Britain over 2000 years ago and changed our country. Even today, the ruins of Roman buildings, forts, roads, and baths can be found all over Britain. The Romans invaded other countries too. The Roman Empire covered much of Europe, north Africa, and the Middle East. Take a look at the PowerPoint called 'Introduction to the Roman Empire' to learn more.
A few miles away from Lichfield, a Roman fort named Etocetum was established soon after AD 50 (That’s 1,970 years ago!!). You can visit it today in a village called Wall.
