Roman Army Week

Come along and join our very own Second Augustan Legion

Meet our Centurion, take a look at some armour, weapons and military equipment from the Roman army and find out what life was like for a Roman soldier on the edge of the empire. 

Have you got what it takes to be a Roman legionary?

There’ll also be an opportunity to try on Roman armour and learn to march with the Centurion using Latin commands. 

Finish your visit by buying a certificate saying you joined the Roman army and earned your first coin of pay. 

 

This activity lasts an hour.
