The marquee was a very popular place to be and everyone gathered here for our final session of the event - a storytelling/ role play session with Paul entitled "The Life and Death of a Roman Soldier"
Paul explained how Romans buried thier loved ones with many significant items, such as food and drink, their weapons, money (to pay the ferryman to take them to their afterlife) and sentimental items .
Finally, he demonstrated how, in modern times, graves are excavated and together we debated what would have remained of this roman grave.
A great event, with lots of learning and plenty of fun!! Feedback was fantastic............we will be back with more fun @ the fort in the coming months!
Massive thanks to everyone who made the event possible - there was lots of work behind the scenes in planning and preparation as well as in delivering.
