Lesson 2 – To explore crime and punishment in the Roman period. Use the Slideshow below to look at Roman crime and punishment.
Can you remember when the Roman period was? Look through
the slides explaining when the Romans lived and when they came to Britain. Show children the map of the Roman Empire when it was at its greatest extent.
By the time the Romans got to Britain, they had already developed a very detailed legal
process. Citizens were covered by Roman law while non-citizens (most of the population) were covered by local law. Look at the process of catching and trying a criminal and some of the main punishments. In practice, this meant that many crimes went unpunished, so people also asked for divine help. Look at the curse tablets from Bath.
The Roman system of law has had a huge influence on the modern practice of law.
