This storyboard does not have a description.
Roman soldiers practiced hand-to-hand combat with wooden swords, spears and shields that were deliberately much heavier than those they used in battle.
They trained with dummy swords and javelins made of wood. A javelin is a light spear that is thrown by hand.
Roman Soldiers Ate Mostly Grain. They were not meat eaters. Their diet was mostly grain: wheat, barley, and oats, mainly, but also spelt and rye.
They were fist tough to march. The historian Vegitius tells us that it was seen as important to the army that soldiers could march at speed.Any army witch would be spit up by stragglers or soldiers at the end in different speeds would be attacked fastly
A further part of basic military training was also physical exercise. Vegetius mentions running, long and high jump and carrying heavy packs.
At the end of the day Roman soldiers would get on their horses back home and wait for the next day to begin.
