Chester Dewa Museum

On Tuesday 2nd May, Year 3 had a superb trip to the Chester Dewa Roman Experience. We were met by a Roman soldier and were given our shield. We had to march through the streets of Chester before finding out more about the armour and weapons the soldiers used. We were able to practise some Roman army moves and tactics including the tortoise. (See video) When we arrived at the amphitheatre, Mrs Williams and Mrs Moir had a gladiator battle. Mrs Moir won and Mrs Williams asked for mercy from the crowd. We marched back to the centre shouting, "Sin, sin, sin, dex, sin." (Left, left, left, right, left).

After lunch we went inside the museum and found out lots of interesting facts. Did you know that Roman doctors use a stick and animal manure to fix a broken bone? Did you know the Romans ate purple carrots? Did you know that the Romans considered eating a dormouse a treat? Did you know that the Romans shared baths?

Next we look at the archaeological dig site and the evidence discovered. We also had time exploring in the hands on room, using the catapult, trying on armour and realising our fate in the Roman jail.
