Year 4 visited Murton Park on Thursday 22nd January. It was a very cold day but we had all wrapped up warmly! We dressed up as Roman soldiers, it was quite difficult to keep our helmets on and carry a spear and shield at the same time! We signed up to the army for 25 years and then made clay oil lamps as well as practising our weapons training. Later in the day a Celt attacked our fort but we saw him off! At the end of our visit we tried the Testeudo formation and then marched off home, left, right, or, as the Romans would have said:SIn, Dex, Sin, Dex!The main gate.
This machine is called a ballista. It fired a huge arrow.
Replica shields and swords – they would have been very heavy!
