What have the Romans done for us?

On Thursday, Skiddaw class travelled up to see what the Romans had done for us nearly two thousand years ago.

Through our visit to the Roman Army Museum and Vindolanda we learnt all sorts of facts.

The Romans had very hygienic bathrooms with running water. MJ

Instead of toilet roll they used sponges on sticks soaked in vinegar! EN

They ate a meal twice a day. OD

Roman shoes had hobnails on similar to the studs on our football boots. SD

A Roman symbol was the eagle. FW

Here we are enjoying the sunshine. Many thanks to FOLS for contributing to the cost of travelling this far – we really appreciate it and our visit has made lots of lasting memories and we learnt loads.
