This afternoon you are going to find out about Hadrians’ Wall. I would like you to start by watching this video.
Then I would like you to complete the following reading activity. The answers are at the end, so I’ll trust you not to take a peek!
For your final activity I would like you to imagine that you are Emperor Hadrian and you need to create a recruitment poster to convince your Roman people to come and help you build the wall. It should be bright and eye-catching. You also need to think about…
Why are you building the wall?
How will it benefit the Romans if you separate from the Picts, who keep raiding your land?
Can you offer them accommodation near the wall?
