Virtual Field Trips


Virtual field trips available - contact the learning team to book now!


In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have developed an exciting series of innovative virtual field trips for school groups.



Offering stimulating content to support the teaching of Key Stage 2, each field trip will explore different periods of the Roman occupation and Roman daily life. Combining collection objects, actors and interactive activities, our virtual field trips bring high quality museum learning into your classroom and comprise:

  • Approximately 45 minutes of filmed content deeply rooted in The Novium Museum's Roman collection;

  • Object-based activity sheets to be supplied digitally for use during the virtual field trip;

  • An optional loan box including handling objects that feature within the filmed chapters;

  • An optional virtual Roman city tour.


We have three virtual field trips available:


Britain before the Romans

Discover what life was like before the Roman invasion, and find out more from Maeve the Celt about how people lived in the Iron Age. Learn about the Roman invasion of 43AD and how it changed Britain.


Roman Daily Life

Understand more about how the Romans lived, what objects they used and what they ate, and delve further into life at Chichester's Roman bath house. Learn more about what language they spoke with a Latin lesson from Katia the Roman.


Roman Army

Join our Roman soldier Brutus and learn how and why the Roman army was so successful. Discover more about the armour that they wore and how the army was formed.
