How the Romans Changed Britain

This slide show will show how the Romans helped to shape and change the landscape and the wildlife of Britain. Guiding Questions:

In the beginning....

When the Romans came to Britain, they spotted a big problem. Britain did not have roads that went from place to place. They did have paths, and dirt roads, but not like the roads the Romans built. Importantly, they did not have a smooth road from England to Scotland. The marching Romans needed smooth roads to get from one place to another in a fast and effective way. They used these roads to move all their building equipment, personal items, and supplies.

So, the Romans built Dere Street. Dere Street connected England and Scotland. Dere Street passed through Trimontium Roman Fort.
