we ran a have a go event at the living history weekend at Segontium fort again this year. And what a fantastic experience it was, if a little surreal at times. Well how often do you see a minibus reversing and a centurion in full armer climbing out of the driving seat, or a squad of 8 Roman soldiers marching to the burger van for lunch.
one soldier came and asked if he could shoot some of his arrows at our target, he then challenged two of our members to a head to head closest to the centre shoot-off. I am happy to report that this time the Welsh beat the Romans.
