We were transported back to 72 AD where we met Felix Maximus, a Roman Gladiator! In full armour, he talked to us about life as a gladiator, displaying his weaponry and demonstrating the equipment used. We were led through a soldiers drill and even got to take part in a mock battle and a chariot race!. The children were fascinated to hear about the food he ate (Elephant trunks!) and the way he bathed. What a great start to our topic!
