Synopsis

History Plays: The Emperor's Head: A Roman Play by Julia Donaldson

Arthur Godbold discovers a bronze head of the Roman Emperor Claudius. As he tries to figure out how the head ended up in a Suffolk river, the dramatic story of the Roman invasion of Britain unfolds in front of his very own eyes. Emperor Claudius, British Queen Boudicca, ordinary Roman soldiers and British slave girls are all involved in this exciting play, providing a variety of opportunities for KS2 classes to explore both historical and literacy topics in an involving and creative setting. A fantastic resource for studying the Romans in Britain - perfect for the new National Curriculum.
