T Forms' History Trip to the National Museum of Scotland

T Forms’ history work has focused on the Romans, ahead of their much-anticipated trip to Rome and the National Museum of Scotland is a great place to go to find out about what the Romans did for us!

This time our pupils accessed the museum’s collection of Roman soldier artefacts and worksheets. Amongst other objects, they had the opportunity to handle a section of maile, discovered that the Romans used oil and a strigil to help keep clean and learnt that most Roman soldiers wrote on wax tables with stylus pens made from wood or metal. Tablets were important because parchment paper was very expensive!

To add to their fun and informative day, T Form also enjoyed the opportunity to dress up Roman style.
