Our visit to Chester

We visited Chester to explore the Roman heritage of the city. Our visit began in the dark hold of a Roman Galley. 
We were able to experience the sights, sounds and smells of Roman Britain.  We viewed genuine Roman, Saxon and Medieval remains buried beneath Chester. There was a  superb collection of artefacts from both Chester and the wider Roman Empire. In the  'hands-on' room we did  a variety of historically themed activities such as trying on Roman Armour. 

We followed a Roman Soldier armed with battle shields.  As new recruits we formed a testudo, visited the amphitheatre and prepared for battle.
