Fishbourne family days report

Children spent part of their half-term break learning about life in Roman times.
They took part in Family Fun Days at Fishbourne Roman Palace, near Chichester.

The youngsters have been taking part in various activities such as tasting Roman food and making clay lamps.

Some children were also given a guided tour of the mosaics in the palace.

Christine Medlock, director of the site, said: ‘It gives them an idea of what life was like back then. It helps them learn about the different cultures.

‘It’s extremely important. Also, it’s in the National Curriculum to learn about the Romans, so it helps a lot of children with their homework. They can come here and learn things and take pictures.

‘It was popular with everyone. We had a lot of visitors. We were really pleased.’
