We see a museum with Roman artefacts over 2,000 years old. Role play then explains and shows how the Roman army was a precise military machine. We are shown a Roman legionary, one of 5,000 soldiers in a legion, in full armour with a Gladius, a sword used in close combat, as well as other weapons. Some of the marching formations used by the Roman army to gain the upperhand against their enemies are also shown. This clip has subtitles available in Flash.
To illustrate the strength of the Roman army. This clip would be very useful in learning about the armour and weapons used by the soldiers in the Roman army. This clip could also lead to role play in the classroom, with the children taking on the marching formations.
