We are currently developing a range of free, downloadable PDF resources, suitable for P3-P7 (Y2-Y6) that can be used in the classroom, as part of Roman studies project work or for children working from home.
We always welcome direct contact from schools undertaking Roman history topics, local history projects and those that want to discover more about archaeology, museums, galleries, exhibitions, interpretation and research.
Schools can also take part in our Schools Trimontium Walk – which explores the site of Trimontium Fort at Newstead, under the shadow of the Eildon Hills.
Secondary school aged children local to the Trimontium site in the Scottish Borders can join our Youth Panel. This is suitable for students with a keen interest in history and museums & galleries. The youth panel contribute to the plans and developments currently underway at The Trimontium Trust and are able to benefit from training, experience and hands-on involvement in a unique Roman Museum.
During the redevelopment phase of the Trimontium Museum (2020-2021) we may be able to visit schools local to the Trimontium site with classroom workshops exploring the Roman history of the area using digital presentations, and if suitable original artefacts and replica objects.
For all enquiries for education and learning opportunities with The Trimontium Trust please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07312111350

Older Primary and Secondary students studying History or Humanities can explore these 3 films, created with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Trimontium Trust commissioned three films to explore three different theories for the mysterious evacuation of Trimontium.
After researching and reading about the site, watch each film, discuss and debate across the class and see which one you feel might be the true story. As research, archaeology, theories and evidence come to light the story of this turbulent part of our history evolves – be part of that story…
