Roman Shield Wall
In Year 7 humanities, students have been learning about ancient Rome. As part of the course they looked at early roman campaigns against their arch rivals, Carthage. One of main the reasons why Rome became a super power was the strength and discipline of the Legions. It was due to the organisation and bravery of the Roman Legions that allowed Rome to progress from a small city state to an Empire encompassing the entire Mediterranean Sea. In order for our students to gain a better understanding of the life and organisation of the Roman Legions, the Year 7’s were given the opportunity to make their own Roman swords and shields and take part in their own shield wall.
