Romans (43 AD)

For studying the Romans in Guernsey, we recommend to schools:

- A hosted session at Castle Cornet, led by a guide in Roman costume, who will tell the story of the Roman shipwreck in St Peter Port harbour.  This includes a visit to the Maritime Museum, where most of the Roman artefacts are on display, and a handling session of original and replica Roman objects.

- The 'Romans in Guernsey' activity book, produced by Guernsey Museums.  This is available to download at the end of this page.  If you would prefer to have a physical copy, please get in touch with our Access & Learning Manager, via 'Contact Us' at the top of this page.

- A visit to see Guernsey's Roman Ship in open storage.  Please note that this is just a store.  It is housed next to Guernsey Pearl at Rocquaine and can be tied in with a visit to Fort Grey opposite.  As with all our venues, we all urge teachers to carry out pre-visits.
