In the Roman amphitheatre

Pupils record their investigation of these archaeological remains during this engaging primary session.

Session description

Meet an archaeologist in the remains of London's Roman amphitheatre, buried deep beneath the Guildhall Art Gallery, and develop enquiry skills as you explore the wealth of artefacts on display at the Museum of London.

As you stroll between the two sites, you'll build a better understanding of the city of Londinium, by walking where it once was.

On request, the amphitheatre may also be able to arrange an interactive drama experience, at a cost of £70 per class. Awaken pupils’ imaginations by meeting a Roman soldier and finding out what he would have done in the amphitheatre nearly two thousand years ago.
