Welcome to our class!
Our Mantle in Spring is based around the Romans. We are working as a team of "Wall Watchers" who volunteer to observe and patrol Hadrian's Wall, looking out for signs of change or damage.
Find the picture of the camel stone for the start of the story, and work your way up.
In the present day, the Wall Watchers were contacted by the parents of Nick White, whose name was on the plaque that had been attached to Hadrian's Wall. They had not realised that they could not stick their plaque on the wall. Nick was their son who loved the Romans and had always wanted to visit Hadrian's Wall, but they lived in Australia and sadly Nick passed away after being in a car accident. His parents asked if, instead of the plaque, the Wall Watchers would set up an exhibition about the wall in memory of Nick.
The battle was brutal and many died, both soldiers and villagers. The survivors gathered the carved stones made by the fallen soldiers, including Gaius, and placed them within Hadrian's Wall before the final stone was laid, in memory of those who had died.
We needed special tools to remove the plaque safely. Behind it, we made an incredible discovery... the carved stone! Our team made a video for the news programme asking for help in finding the person that left the plaque.
