Event: Soldier v Soldier

17 & 19–24 February 2018, 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm
Cost Free
Suitability Families

In this last year of the First World War commemorations we will look at a soldier of the time, his equipment and clothing and compare him to a Roman soldier.

Which soldier is better equipped? Which soldier’s armour and weaponry is more effective? The soldier of 100 years ago, or that of 2,000 years ago?

Drop in and have a chat with our soldiers and make up your own mind!
