Centurion and Standard Bearer will visit your school and train pupils as new recruits and use Latin commands to arrange them in parade and battle formation. Those who are entitled by passing their training will be fitted in scaled-down genuine Roman armour, manufactured manually by us using original techniques and materials where possible. These pupils will then demonstrate to their contemporaries the famous 'tortoise' battle formation .The pupils will get a feel of what it was like to be in the Roman army during the conquest of Britannia in the Ist century AD. Years later they will maintain these memories and have a more clear understanding of history.
For history is the founding stone upon which all other subjects revolve!
Long before the days of television and radio and newspapers the Romans needed to send information quickly around their Empire. The most simplest way to do this was to stamp the latest news on coins. Normally the Emperor's head was on one side much like our Queens head is today... and on the other would be the latest information.
When Emperor Claudivs invaded Britain he brought over Elephants to selebrate his great victory, and immediatley had coins minted with these strange new animals on the reverse of his coins. Gods, animals from mythology, temples, ships and any new event that would inspire and promote the great changes within the ever expanding Empire.
Also this way the Barbarians outside the Empire would be greatly impressed! :-)
