Year four visited Segedunum in Wallsend as part of our work studying the Romans. We took part in a workshop to learn about everyday life as a soldier and got dressed up in some traditional costume too. After declaring an oath to the Roman army, we discovered that soldiers stayed in it for 25 long years! Luckily, we managed to impress the commanding officer who released our cohort in time for the minibuses to collect us at the end of the day!
Look how high Hadrian’s Wall would have been! We imagined what it would have been like to be a Roman or a Celtic Soldier.
