Product Description

The BBC s absorbing children s drama is back with yet more mysteries for our four loyal friends Flavia, Nubia, Jonathan and Lupus to investigate and solve. Whether they are dealing with assassins or searching for kidnapped children, it is the trials they face in every episode that continues to strengthen their friendship. Set in the time of the Roman Empire, against a backdrop of one of history s most turbulent periods, the bond between our four social misfits continues to grow and develop as they set out on a journey of exploration and discovery. They are all growing up and must now learn to accept the responsibilities that come with their different positions in a harsh society. Flavia must cope with her father s impending marriage and her own journey into womanhood, but is his new bride all that she seems? Jonathan s father needs him by his side but with prized Gladiators in town his life is suddenly in mortal danger. Why has he been chosen to fight in the arena in front of the Emission? He is still just a child? Nubia must learn to cope with life as a freed slave, and with her growing feelings for Flavia s handsome tutor Aristo, but first she must prove his innocence and time is rapidly running out. And Lupus sets out to find his family. How, and why was his mother sacrificed to the gods? Based on the best-selling books by Caroline Lawrence, this lavish series stars Mark Benton, (Dr Who, City Lights, Northern Lights and TV s incompetent banker in the Nationwide adverts), as the bumbling Floridius. EPISODES Scrolls 1 & 2 The Gladiators Of Capua Scrolls 3 & 4 The Trials Of Flavia Gemina Scrolls 5 & 6 The Colossus Of Rhodes Scrolls 7 & 8 The Fugitive From Corinth Scrolls 9 & 10 The Slave Girl From Jerusalem.

If you enjoyed the first series then you will enjoy these. My boys (8 & 10) loved the books and weren't disappointed by the films. The rich visual details and music are good and the abridged plots still recognisable as those of Caroline Lawrence. Great to sit and watch an episode rather than a whole film when it's getting late but you want to sit together watching something you ALL enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars School resources 16 April 2010

I am a primary school teacher. As the children in my class were investigating The Romans as their history topic during the current term, we were linking this with their literacy work. The Roman Mysteries are well written stories which include well researched background detail related to the period. The children acquired important detail about Roman life whilst enjoying an interesting story. The DVD versions of some of the stories were also very helpful in linking the visual with the written.
The books are a good read and the film versions very watchable. Several of the children persuaded their parents to buy copies of the books, and some were persuaded to borrow them from the local library! Great result!

We've watched the whole series several times already, and have re-watched Series 1. They're definitely a family favorite. Our resident historian, who is an expert on late Roman Empire and is very difficult to please, gives them the big thumbs up as well.
