British Museum: Roman Soldiers


Discover the secrets of the Roman Army in this fascinating gift book from the British Museum.

What was a Roman legion? How exactly did soldiers train for battle? And why did they have to ‘march like a tortoise’? Find out the answers to these questions and many more in this complete guide to life in the Roman army. Filled with fascinating facts and grisly detail, you’ll uncover what life was like in the army camp, how soldiers planned a siege and even why they catapulted creepy-crawlies at the enemy!

With silver foil on the cover and quirky colour illustrations on every page by award-winning artist Tom Froese, children aged 6+ will love learning about one of ancient Rome’s most grisly and gripping subjects.

The fantastic follow-up to British Museum: Mummies Unwrapped! (“Perfect for mid-primary aged children” – BookTrust)
