Roman Activity Book by Sue Weatherill, Steve Weatherill

Step back in time with this fantastic activity book. It's packed with crafty historical ideas for things to make and do from Roman times. Tell the time with a Roman water clock, make your own Roman mosaic, dress like a Roman, build your own Roman fort, and rustle up a tasty Roman snack! There are full step-by-step instructions for all projects, a map of the Roman Empire, a timeline, fascinating and fun facts about Roman life, a stencil of Roman numerals, and a handy glossary of tricky words.


'A super way to reinforce studies and bring the subject to life.'

About the Author

Steve Weatherill: I trained in animation at the RCA and in a past life worked in advertising and drew a strip cartoon for the FT. With my wife, Sue, joint author of many of my books, and my two sons, I live in the heart of the Lincolnshire countryside with a flock of geese, the inspiration for my picture book character Baby Goz (published by Frances Lincoln). I like to think that the humour I inject into my books makes sure that both children and adults enjoy them. For b small, with my wife, I have written the Crafty History Series and the Read & Play series. You might also catch me touring the UK with my 'roadshow', introducing children in schools and libraries to Baby Goz and my other characters. Sue Weatherill: I first started working with Steve on the Egyptian Activity book after a family visit to Egypt. I was useless at history at school so all the fascination of the subject suddenly hit me. I particularly enjoyed researching for the Prehistoric Activity book. I think it made me feel quite young. And I still can't walk down a pebbled drive without looking for fossils.
