Romans

Train to be a Roman soldier.  Join your cohort, appoint your standard-bearer, learn the marching song then follow the trail and tackle the challenges along the way to earn your pay.  Compete in chariot racing and try your hand with wax tablets, stuffed dates, and other workshop activities.  You’ll even learn some Latin too.
