Teachers brought history to life for pupils learning all about the Roman Empire.
Children at Littleham Primary School welcomed a special guest from the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter and experienced first-hand what life must have been like for the ancient Britons.
The year four children got to handle a number of artefacts, try on armour and meet a roman soldier.
They also took part in a battle reenactment, with the help of year three children, and faced the decision of whether to stand and fight as a tribe, for the land they claimed first, or to join the Roman’s cause.
Teacher Sarah Padbury said: “Another brilliant day. The children especially loved the drill practice and marching in formation.

“Others were also impressed with the fantastic jewels, coins and weapons. If you are looking for an expert on Roman Britain look no further the year four.”
