You don’t need to go abroad to see world-class Roman sites! This fascinating civilisation left its mark on Britain too, and nowhere is that more visible today than in the Cotswolds. The ancient cities of Corinium and Aquae Sulis (modern-day Cirencester and Bath) are two of the best places in the UK to get a feel for life in Roman Britain.
Along with brilliant museums such as the Corinium Museum and the Roman Baths, the surrounding countryside is dotted with archaeological sites, including the luxurious Chedworth Roman Villa.
Our suggested itinerary is designed to bring the study of Latin & Classical Civilisations to life through interactive workshops, and your students are sure to enjoy walking in the footsteps of the Romans.
