Where did the Romans come from?
While the original Romans came from Rome, by the time the Roman Army invaded Britain it was made up of soldiers from across the Roman Empire. The empire stretched across Europe to the Middle East and Africa. There is evidence that the Emperor Claudius brought elephants to Britain with his troops. There is also evidence of African pottery being used in what is now Scotland. This clip has subtitles available in Flash.
The clip can link to study of the development of the Roman Empire and the area it covered. This could be compared with modern maps and the number of different countries that make up the same area today. The clip introduces the idea of historic evidence. Students could discuss different types of evidence and sources.
