Can you crack the Roman curse? LatinNow have kindly put together an exciting activity for you that'll let you imagine you are a Roman dealing with a very Roman problem. Have a go at this activity and enjoy learning about the past.

Imagine you were a Roman. What could you do if  someone had stolen something from you? There was no police force to help you get back your property.  One way that people could find help was to use a curse  tablet. 

Dr Jane Masseglia from LatinNow explains more about this activity in the video below. Enjoy learning about Roman history at the same time as having a go at cracking the curse. You can find the downloadable activity sheet below.
