This guide pulls together resources on Ancient Rome for teaching purposes


Ancient Rome crosses a number of strands in the primary curriculum - for example: early peoples and ancient societies, stories from the lives of people in the past (both history curriculum), and people and places in other areas; even maps, globes and graphical skills (geography curriculum)
