INFORMATION ON ROMAN MIDDLEWICH FOR SCHOOLS & GROUPS
Archaeological finds from the Roman Occupation at Middlewich have been made for over 250 years. Over the course of that time theories about the Roman settlement have been discussed and the site of the Roman Fort debated amongst the landowners, residents and professionals.
The first conclusive evidence of a Roman Fort was not found until 1993, when a geophysical survey of Harbutt’s Field was carried out, clearly showing the defensive ditches and gateways.
The archaeological evidence of Roman occupation from numerous digs over the years has enabled Middlewich Town Council and Middlewich Heritage Trust to introduce a range of learning resources to schools.
We can offer:
We link into the history/local history curriculum and through the resources we encourage debate, questioning and listening skills.
Related subjects include Science, Geography and Art & Design.
