Synopsis

Perfect for schools - both for class reading as well as performance.



A short, illustrated play set in ancient Rome written by Julia Donaldson, author of the modern classic, The Gruffalo.



Arthur Godbold discovers a bronze head of the Roman Emperor Claudius. As he tries to figure out how the head ended up in a Suffolk river, the dramatic story of the Roman invasion of Britain unfolds in front of his very own eyes.



Emperor Claudius, British Queen Boudicca, ordinary Roman soldiers and British slave girls all appear in this exciting play, providing a variety of opportunities for KS2 classes to explore both historical and literary topics in an involving and creative setting.
