We’ve had a fantastic day at Segedenum exploring a real Roman fort.
We started the day looking at some artefacts, some of which had actually been found at this site. There were coins, pans, and a vase. Some of us even played some of the same games that Roman soldiers would have played. We looked at models of the fort and worked out what the different parts were. Then we went outside and explored the fort.
After lunch we did a workshop on the life of a Roman soldier. We experienced what a Roman soldier would have worn, it was very heavy! We did some dressing up, learnt the promise that they made, practised our marching and some fighting techniques.
