Explore the Roman Empire at the time of its greatest expansion and discover how place names connect us to our Roman past

The Roman Empire was one of the largest and most powerful empires in human history and a fascinating area for students to explore in CLIL history classes. These resources include short reading texts and maps to teach students the fundamentals, including the confines of the empire and the density and distribution of towns.

Activities encourage students to connect the past to the present, by examining how modern place names can sometimes be an indicator of our Roman past. Useful phrases for speaking and writing are provided to help students tackle talking about this period in history.
