Year 9 visit Fishbourne and Roman Chichester

25/05/2010

Last week, we took a coach trip to Fishbourne Palace to look at the mosaics [writes Jacquelin Tsui].


We were really lucky to be able to see these mosaics, which were built thousands of years ago. Through reading the little descriptions, I learnt more about the structure and the purpose of the signs and symbols on the mosaics.


I also tried the food with Roman sauce and I thought that it was really tasty. Afterwards, we headed to a workshop nearby to see other Roman remains, like pottery. I was very happy to have a chance to touch these 2000 year old antiques as we were taught how to tell the purpose, shape, size and the quality of the item.


Before we went to lunch, my friends tried on the type of clothes worn by the Roman royal family and by a slave; now I know how to distinguish between the rich and the poor in Roman times using clothing!

After lunch, we left Fishbourne and went to Chichester to look at the archaeological site there. We looked at the walls from Roman times, and also found an underground skeleton...
