Our visit to Dewa Roman Experience in Chester

Still image for this video
Year 4 visited the Dewa Roman Experience in Chester. We leaned about life as a Roman and Roman soldier, about how they lived and how they fought their battles. We also explored an archaeological dig where we saw walls dating back to Roman times.
During our trip, we visited Roman gardens where learned about the equipment needed by a Roman soldier in battle and how their battles were fought. We used our shields to create the 'tortoise shell' battle formation.
After the gardens we then looked at an amphitheatre where during Roman times gladiators and Roman soldiers would have fought.
