Abstract: In partnership with Classics for All ( we encourage and support schools to incorporate Classics within or alongside the curriculum; a key aim is to raise awareness that studying the ancient world and languages need not simply be done to gain a language qualification but can be embedded within many areas of the curriculum and can benefit pupils in many ways. These resources provide opportunities for children to explore, experience and learn from our internationally-renowned research in classical archaeology and ancient history through a range of activities. Our KS2/3 resources emphasise the culturally plural nature of the Roman world, introducing Latin in the context of daily life in Roman Leicester (Ratae Corieltauvorum); all sessions incorporate activities based on the research of the School of Archaeology and Ancient History (SAAH) and excavations carried out by University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS). The resources include session plans, PowerPoints and worksheets, together with summaries of key research findings and links to SAAH and ULAS publications.
