Roman Palace Tim Wood
This is one of a series of books in which children visit locations, in this case a reconstructed Roman palace, and, using evidence they find, recreate the everyday life of the people who lived in these places during their heyday. The books include a time-line describing the important events of the period and showing how the location itself changed over time to the present day. In specially commissioned photographs children are shown exploring the locations, handling artefacts and experimenting with reconstruction using such things as clothes and cooking utensils. In this book they discover evidence that shows them how the palace was built and how the people in it dressed, what they ate and how they cooked it, and how they kept themselves clean and warm.
