Think about what you would need if you settled somewhere. What is most important?
Now think about the Romans when they first settled. What sort of area would they look for?
Use the settlement sorting cards and put them into 3 groups: Things they would need,(essential) things they might (desirable) and things they wouldn’t need.
Look at this picture of a Roman settlement.
Why do you think they settled here?
What needs have been met?
What resources have they used to create their settlement?
