A Roman adventure

23 September 2016

As part of their History topic on Early Invaders, Year 3 girls and staff visited the Lunt Roman Fort in Baginton this week on Tuesday. 

The Lunt is an early wooden Roman fort. Parts of it have been reconstructed so the girls were able to patrol the ramparts, train to march Roman style and dress as Roman soldiers. 

The highlight of the day was learning to fight with Roman shields and swords in the cavalry training ring (gyrus).

This interactive experience has helped to bring this history topic to life.
