We went to Chester with our local Home Ed group to visit the Dewa Museum.
The day started with a tour and training session from our own Roman Centurion - he armed each child and talked through life in the army, rules and trained them.
He even demonstrated how to chop of a head?!?
Following this we went for lunch in the amphitheater and then had our museum tour including looking at some excavations.
Finally they played in the hands on room - building a keystone arch
trying on armour
sorting archaeological discoveries
learning about the toilets (including the old sponge on a stick)
building a hypocaust (underfloor heating), playing games and using a catapult.
