On a sunny Monday morning, the Second Form travelled to St Albans to visit the Roman museum named ‘Verulamium’ after the city as it was called in Roman times. The boys enjoyed handling the artefacts in the museum and exploring the different areas that it covered. They also had the opportunity to visit a ‘Roman market’ dressing up in typical clothing of the period complete with their own Roman name!
After lunch, the boys visited a Roman hypocaust which was the early underfloor heating system that the Roman invented. They also saw a section of the Roman wall that still remains which used to surround the city. The highlight for many of the boys was the nineteen baby goslings we saw on the beautiful lake in the park as we made our way back to the coach! It was a very enjoyable day for the Second Form boys and staff.
