"Romans Revealed" project allows children to "dig" into diversity of Roman Britain

A new interactive website, aimed at children, has been launched by the Runnymede Trust and archaeologists from the University of Reading. The site focusses on the diversity of Roman Britain by allowing children to learn about Roman residents such as the ‘Ivory Bangle Lady,’ a "high status young woman of North African descent who remains were buried in Roman York."

The Romans Revealed project allows visitors to "dig" up Roman graves and learn the stories of four people living in 4th century Britain. The site is based on A Long Way Home: Diaspora Communities in Roman Britain, a University of Reading project that investigated 150 skeletons to find out about patterns of migration.
