ZP has some fantastic facts about Romans to share with us. She's also made a short film, which was actually shot in a real Roman colosseum! Well, historians are currently not in full agreement about whether Roman colosseums were made of Lego, but it looks pretty realistic to me...

This may come as a surprise to many, but COM is a little older than he looks. A couple of thousand years older, in fact, as he was a Celtic man during the Roman invasion of Britain! Click on the link below to read his diary entry, written over two thousand years ago...

I know that NA has been working very hard on her studies whilst the school has been closed, so it was great to receive some of her work sent through recently and to share it here.
It doesn't end there though, because NA has also created a fantastic game in which the Romans battle the Celts. What's even better, she made a video to show us all about it. Apparently the Romans usually win, which makes her game historically accurate!
