As part of a complementary schools programme, accurate replica artefacts, based on the real ones, have been commissioned. This innovative approach allows pupils to handle artefacts in both the real and virtual world, gaining a better understanding of their use and place in the Roman world. For more information, take a look at the Handling Box section of this website.
