                               THE ROMAN ARMY.
                              WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN.

       At the end of this lesson you will have produced an advert to get people to join the
       Roman Army. What should you say? You will need to say what legionaries have to
       be like, what job they must do and what they would gain by joining.

       Additional information
       Roman soldiers had to be tough. They were expected to march 20 miles a day wearing
       armour. They were also expected to carry their own shield, some food and camping
       equipment.
       Soldiers were also trained to fight together. They marched into battle in a flexible line
       with their shields next to each other. Most of the time the army was not involved in
       fighting, at this time they built roads, aqueducts, forts, baths and just about anything
       that you can think of. Some of the army would be trained administrators, who would
       help gather the taxes.
