Lethbridge Primary School
Roman Soldier Workshop
We had a visit from a Roman Legionary today. We learnt that Roman soldiers needed to keep very fit and would often march 20 miles (30 km) a day wearing armour. We were recruited and started our initiation programme. We were given our:
gladius - sword
galea - helmet
scutum - shield
We then went on a march and took part in a mock battle. Some of us also took part in a Roman feast and were served honey dipped dormice. Yummy!
