Review by Leon: I enjoyed this activity. It was fun. But I thought the Druid’s Story was a bit weird. I am in third and I think it might be a scary activity for younger children (say second class) because there is a bog body and an animal sacrifice in it. It is important to remember that this activity is set in Wales not Ireland. There will be similarities but there are also differences. Though Roman graves were found in Bray, the Romans never invaded Ireland.
