Choose your workshop: 

Theatre | NEW
Children dressed in costumes and masks represent the typical characters from the Roman theatre; sketches are explained, before being acted out by the children.

Costumes 
Children dress up in costumes and discover the clothing, as a marker of social status. They then complete an educational document during the show.

Mosaics 
Considered a veritable art, the mosaics show how the Romans represented their environment. The children reproduce a mosaic in groups of two.
Calligraphy 
A mastery of language and writing are synonymous with learning; the children study the development of writing and produce a document in Latin script.
Masks 
Masks played a major part in Roman theatre. The children make a mask in clay, in accordance with the criteria of antiquity and the characteristics of the figures.
Oil lamps | NEW
Oil lamps developed between prehistory and the Roman period. The children make a lamp in clay, which they can then take home with them.
Games 
Hopscotch, which was present as early as the second millennium BCE, was one of the Romans’ favourite games. The children create a portable version of the game and practise playing it.
