Roman Dewa Experience - Chester

Class: YEAR 5W Year: 2017 - 2018

We visited Chester to explore the Roman heritage of the city.

We followed a Roman Soldier armed with battle shields.  As new recruits we formed a testudo, visited the amphitheatre and prepared for battle. 

During our visit, we jumped aboard the dark hold of a Roman Galley.  We were able to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Roman Britain.  We viewed genuine Roman, Saxon and Medieval remains buried beneath Chester. There was a  superb collection of artefacts from both Chester and the wider Roman Empire. In the  'hands-on' room we did  a variety of historically themed activities such as trying on Roman Armour.
