Taunton Prep School meet ‘Claudius Maximus’

Somerset County Gazette

By Phil Hill »

CHILDREN at Taunton Prep School were visited by ‘Claudius Maximus’ in full Roman uniform.

The youngsters found out about discipline in the Roman Army and took part in a drill, marching around the school field.

They learned when the Romans invaded Britain and tried on different pieces of a Roman soldier’s uniform.

They also recreated a battle between the Celts and Romans where,
although the latter were outnumbered three to one, they were still
victorious due to superior tactics and their ability to maintain
formation.
