    Roman Villa Virtual Dig

    This resource has so much potential. It is a shame they don't do more of the rooms. Also, the Expert Opinions cards are great but would be better if they were larger and/or in colour. The children really enjoyed it though.

    Missing A2 poster

    As the original creator of this I agree that it would be much better with access to the poster. I suspect that it is absent for copyright reasons. However I am fairly certain that all the artefacts featuring on it were used, with permission, from the Romans in Sussex website.
    I hope the absence of the poster doesn't detract too much from this as an introduction to archaeology for children.

    Virtual Dig

    This could be really good - but unfortunately the A2 poster that is referred to in the notes is not available - so once you've worked through the Dig to get to the facts - you can't do anything with them!
