Nearly 2000 years ago the Antonine Wall and its forts were full of life, patrolled by soldiers and surrounded by numerous hangers-on: merchants, girlfriends and other traders. Today most of the sites are deserted. Challenge pupils to bring their local site to life for their local community.
After researching their local site, pupils could bring their site to life by doing some or all of the following: creating interpretation ‘panels’; creating an information leaflet and guided trail; acting as tour guides around the site; dressing up and providing ‘live’ interpretation in role for visitors; scripting and recording an audio tour to be carried round site by visitors etc. Parents, other classes and guests could then be invited to a special event.
