Our 1st century Roman fort can accommodate groups of up to 65 children to spend a day learning about life as a new recruit to the Roman Army and the wider impact of Roman civilisation on life in Britain under the leadership and watchful gaze of the duty Centurion and their assistant.
The day runs with a mixture of group presentations and hands-on activities. Alongside the essential military skills of marching and basic drill, the recruits will make their own oil lamp and learn about Roman writing. They will learn how to find their way around a Roman fort, a little about Roman religion and how soldiers worked together on the battlefield to make the Roman army one of the most feared fighting units in history.
