Get to grips with roman history

Take up history - conceive history: The Roman Shop

Experience history first hand and learn playfully – modern museum education, school history lessons and exciting re-enactment are based on these concepts. Right here approaches the offer of the Roman Shop to impart the lives of ancient peoples like Greeks, Germans, Celts and Romans with illustrative replicas and didactic teaching materials.

The cradle of culture - the basis for modern times

"The Romans are crazy" is to read in the popular comic book with Gauls, so the French Celts. Although considering his adventures it is entirely possible to agree, the Romans accomplished one of the mightiest empires of the ancient world and built an empire from Italy to the limes that would not be achieved for a long time in history. Fortunately, today we know much about the Romans and also about their direct neighbors Celts, Germans and Greeks, thanks to multifarious excavations of archaeological research. The mediation of this enormous scientific knowledge representing the foundation of our modern society extends in classrooms and in museums far too often in showing texts and viewing objects through a protective glass panel. The Roman Shop offers a wide range of teaching materials about the Romans and other cultures in order to release the distance to history.

Play Roman games, let Caesar in person stride over the teacher's desk, use real everyday articles from ancient times to give your history excursion something special and experience the magic of the past close to the action: An adventure that you will not forget for a long time.

Roman Jewelry, art, games, replica, figures and much, much more

Everyday life in ancient Rome was very different from our life today. Many of our ordinary things have been still unknown and many essential items for Roman life are things of the past. In order to revive this forgotten past in rich detail the Romans Shop provides a wide range of items from the world in the centuries before and after Christ, whether south or north of the Limes.
Learn more about typical games played in the streets of Roman cities or in solitary estates in the countryside, the Villa rusticae. Admire pieces of jewelry reproduced detailed from archaeological finds that show the garb of ancient people - whether man or woman. In addition, there is a wide range of everyday objects, objects from the religious sphere and the Romans Shop also offers artworks from the sphere of Roman ruler classes. A wide range of child-oriented teaching materials is also to be found on the Roman Shop pages - sorted by topics.

As well as materials about the Romans, about Egypt and the Middle Ages there are various opportunities to enrich your lessons by didactically valuable texts and sets and thus makes history not only understandable, but also touchable in an impressive manner. Especially from the perspective of modern pedagogy the haptic aspect, which is the chance to emphasize teaching target through tangible objects, is a not to be underestimated argument. Do not miss your chance and take up history.
