Seaton Primary school children looking at Roman coins

Seaton Primary school children looking at Roman coins

Schools and colleges

Schools and colleges will enjoy a range of activities based on the Seaton Down Hoard. We are excited to be able to offer Roman Roadshows in schools. Conservation workshops will also be offered for KS5 students at RAMM. All of these experiences are free so early booking is highly recommended.

Throughout the project more teaching and learning resources for schools will be available on this page.

To book any of these activities or find out more please contact Lizzie Mee, Seaton Down Hoard Project Officer. She can be contacted via email using Lizzie.Mee@exeter.gov.uk

For more detail on activities see below:

Roman Roadshows

Children in KS2 will be able to make a Roman coin, find out about the discovery of the hoard and explore Roman Devon. The workshop also includes a game to compare Roman Devon with East Devon today. In addition children will have the chance to handle real Roman coins from the Seaton Down Hoard. The workshop lasts about 2 hours and can be adapted to suit the needs of your school.

Young people in KS3 and KS4 will find out about conservation and will examine the hoard as a primary source. Students will be able to explore primary and secondary sources as well as discover evidence of Romans in East Devon through the hoard. There will also be an opportunity to meet a Roman re-enactor and handle coins from the hoard itself. The workshop lasts about 2 hours.

You can see where Seaton Down Hoard Roadshows have been in the above map.

Conservation Workshops at RAMM

A total of 12 A level workshops will be delivered throughout the year. We will be inviting small groups of students to spend a day with the Seaton Down Hoard Conservator, Sarah Klopf. Students will engage in real conservation and will be working with RAMM’s staff to discover how the Seaton Down Hoard is cared for. They will learn about the scientific processes of conservation as well as the kinds of changes that metals undergo through time. Students must be able to sit still for long periods of time as well as follow instructions carefully.
