Workshop Summary

What was it like to be a Roman soldier?

Children pretend to be new recruits in the Roman Army and arrive at Segedunum Fort for their training. They learn to march and drill for battle and attend a 'kit training' session in which an adult officer gets dressed in armour and equipped with weapons. In 3 groups the recruits will learn how to fight, check they know all about the kit through handling it, and find out about the different jobs they are expected to do- ready for the arrival of Legate Marcus Caelius, Commander-in-Chief.

Q&A time with handling of original artefacts found at Segedunum Fort completes the workshop.
