What to expect

Award-winning Visitor Centre and Museum offering a unique insight into Roman life in Britain, from beautifully preserved mosaic floors to an extensive collection of Roman archaeology.

Search for images of nature and wildlife within the Villa’s mosaics and artefacts then go outside to take part in bug hunting, tree identification and to look for animal tracks. Pupils will seek inspiration from nature to create art responses by collecting natural materials in our wildlife area. This half day activity will help pupils recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways and give them  an opportunity to explore and use classification keys to group, identify and name a variety of living things in the Villa’s environment.
