Roman facts for children

Roman money is called a shilling. A shilling is 12p old money and a 5p new money that's because they changed the money rules. They do not have pounds so if there is something for a pound they have to count up the 12p and 5p coins to make a pound.

When the Romans go out war they go in a tortoise. A tortoise is when one of the Roman groups puts shields over everybody in there group.

Roman art is called mosaics. Mosaics are like puzzles but they are actually pictures to decorate their buildings first they have to make them. They can be on the roof, on the walls or even on the ground you can put them anywhere you want to put them in the building. Mosaics are made out of crushed up the rocks. They only use rocks that are the colours of the world.
