Digital models and 3D print-outs provide a stimulating resource for engaging your students in the past, complementing museum visits or bringing museum resources to your classroom.
Children in primary education enthusiastically engage with technology and history. Our models can be used in the tech-savvy classroom on tablets and computers, as well as on digital screens. For teachers that want to provide a more tactile experience for their students, 3D print-outs of our models may be preferable. In either case, the small finds and large stone sculptures and inscriptions allow students to explore the Roman frontier in Britain, linking into key stage education, as well as providing materials related to topics of imperialism, frontiers, ancient religion, literacy and foreign languages, dress & fashion, and ancient technology.
Secondary educators, particularly those engaged with teaching Classics and/or Archaeology, will find a great resource in the NU Digital Heritage models. A number of inscriptions demonstrate and reinforce the teaching of Latin language and literacy, as well as Roman religious practice. Aspect of imperial culture and local culture can be found, as well as topics and themes related to imperialism, frontiers, ancient religion, dress & fashion, and ancient technology.
