Roman Dig

10 Jan

As the village Roman villa dig is not open at the moment, we are going to participate in a Roman archaeological dig online. Click on the link and have a go. Once you have finished, comment on the blog and say how you got on. What was it like to use a simulation instead of the real thing? When might a simulation dig be useful?

    We were succsesful and it was strange not using tools for the outside but using a simulater was fun but weird. A simulation like this would help because it wil help the diggers because if that was were they were digging and the pieces were in the exact same place. 🙂

        Would that happen in real life? Would you get help just like that?

      Why else would it be useful? Or perhaps where else?

    We think that the simulatur is really useful because if one of us ever becomes a digger/archeoligist
    well know if they are ever looking for roman artefacts and what things to use

    That was the best game ever because when you used the diffrent tools to find the roman objects,And also once you had found the obdects you had to build them and also try to awnser the questions of what tools they are.

      Yes, but why was it useful to use a simulator?

      Why is it more fun than real life? Surely real life has a certain ‘real’ sense of excitement?

    It was really fun but we would love to do a real Roman dig.
    And it would be useful if you wanted to learn about what Roman things looked like.
