Calendar for the 2018/19 school year featuring Burnum from the start of the century

The Public Institute of Krka National Park presented its new school calendar for the 2018/19 school year, intended for 5th grade pupils of primary schools in Šibenik-Knin County. The presentation was held at the Kistanje Primary School.

The school calendar of the Public Institute of Krka National Park for the 2018/19 school year has been inspired by the Burnum archaeological site.

The Burnum archaeological site and the accompanying museum collection at the Krka Eco Campus in Puljane testifies to the importance of this area even during the Age of Antiquity. The culture of the Romans laid the foundations of civilisation here, making it a very important topic that is addressed in history classes, and is generally very interesting to school-aged children. The Roman military camp Burnum, erected at the turn of the new era, is an ideal example of how the Roman way of life and their customs can be brought closer to pupils.

Every month in the calendar is dedicated to one of the topics, with Burnum as the “common denominator”. This topic is presented in a manner that is appropriate for primary school children, with rich and interesting illustrations, photographs and explanations.

Through the calendar, primary school pupils can learn more about Roman architecture, Roman numerals, social games, Roman mythology and numismatics, and the history of Burnum, what the military camp looked like, the preserved features and their significance (flags), and the military customs (hierarchy, units, formations). The intention of this project is to additionally interest children into researching the Roman culture and Burnum.
