THESE DAYS ARE ESPECIALLY INTENDED FOR BOTH CHILDREN OF NURSERY SCHOOL AND CHILDREN OF THE FIRST DEGREE OF PRIMARY SCHOOL.
The day is organized from 10 am until 3 pm so that children can keep a rhythm similar to a classical school day.
The day is divided as a day at school :
Reception, break, toilets if necessary, various activities requiring listening as well as acting.
How was this project initiated ?
We wished to adapt our site for young children not only just as we were doing previously, i.e. with an appropriate vocabulary, an easy syntax and subjects remembering our young visitors’ experience of life, but also by recounting and acting the different stages of the visit as well as by organizing games enabling them to discover the world of their ancestors.
The Romans used to grant their children permission to play!
Gallo-Roman children played with rag, ivory or wooden dolls as well as with small clay toys; they also played table hopscotch and many other games you’ll have the opportunity to discover at our side.
Rich landowners as well as poor peasants will welcome you in their houses…just let yourselves be carried away by the story of their lives!
In Gallic houses you’ll enjoy the light of candles that lighten this traditional type of housing.
The smell of the wooden fire mixes up with that of oven-baked bread.
The daily activities of Gallo-Roman peasants will be related to you.
A servant or the lady of the house will welcome you at the Gallo-Roman villa. She’ll invite you inside and tell you about her life and the ones of her family.
Here is the temple! Come and discover the religion of our Gallo-Roman ancestors.
Both the presents and the prayers devoted to Mars and Mercury will wake up the curiosity of your young tourists !
A Gallo-Roman character will welcome you at the necropolis and let you discover funeral monuments of that time.
