We’ve been working with Mirador to create board game centred on the history of Ribchester and the River Ribble during the Roman occupation, which was factual, educational and fun. Ribchester was a significant location for the Romans with a fort and larger settlement. Ribchester linked Hadrian’s wall and Lancaster to Manchester, York. The Ribchester hoard consisting of numerous items of cavalryman’s possessions most notable a ceremonial helmet now held at the British Museum, was stumbled upon by a 13yr old boy in 1796. We trialled our board game entitled “Bremetennacum”, the Roman name for Ribchester in two schools working with a total of 78 children. We visited years 3, 4, 5 & 6 at St Wilfred’s Primary, Ribchester and year 4 at St Stephen’s, Preston each school situated near the River Ribble, one rural one urban. The game was a big hit at both schools and we are exploring the idea of a Viking version exploring the history of the Vikings on the Ribble and the Cuerdale Hoard.
