Dewa Roman Experience

Lesson: History

Class: Dosbarth Tarw Year: 2016 - 2017

On 6th April we visited Chester. The morning was spent in the Dewa Roman Experience, learning more about life in the Roman army. We studied the archaeological dig and examined artefacts before moving into the 'hands-on' room to do activities such as trying on Roman armour, building a hypocause and firing a catapult. After a visit to the souvenir shop we had lunch then went out on soldier training. Whilst marching through the city we saw ancient remains, made a Testudo in the Roman gardens and cheered a mock gladiator fight (Mrs Jones v Dayana) in the amphitheatre.
