Year 3 have been learning lots about the Romans. This week, we had a special visitor who came to teach us all about The Regina Tombstone. This amazing piece of history was found in South Shields! It is usually displayed at Arbeia Roman Fort but is currently on loan to the British Museum.
With our visitor, we looked closely at the tombstone with our historian heads on. One of the really interesting things about this tombstone is that the inscriptions is not only written in Latin, it also has a line of Palmyrene script as well, and this is unique in Roman Britain!
We thought about the meaning of monuments and then designed our own using creative art!
