Ribchester museum display
During, and after, a visit to Ribchester Roman Museum we've been teasing out our own take on life, perils and marvels in Roman Britain
First ideas are attached....more will follow
A ROMAN MORNING
Bees are buzzing, birds are singing,
Wind rustles the leaves,
The last butterflies of summer are flying.
Slowly, the morning fills with noise,
Masons chipping stones,
Teachers whacking children,
Children swim in the river,
Dive in the water,
Fishing for food not fun.
On the grassy riverbank,
Chidlren play ancient cricket

Stories are gradually taking shape....collectively (above), individually (below) using palces and objects explored at the museum
Some of the results have been quite alarming....
