Roman Coventry and Warwickshire Project

Lunt Fort Roman

Salve! Welcome to the WCN Roman Coventry and Warwickshire Project!

This project aims to bring Coventry and Warwickshire's Roman past to every school and schoolchild in Coventry and Warwickshire, offering equal opportunities to all pupils irrespective of background or ability. You can learn about the background of the project here.

This project brings together staff and students from the University of Warwick with local schools and Museums to create a set of resources for the teaching of Ancient History at KS2 and KS3. If you would like to find out more about the project and how your school can get involved, or want to receive one-to-one advice on using these resources in the classroom, please do get in touch by emailing Dr Paul Grigsby at
