The year is AD 98. You are a soldier named Marcus. You joined the Roman Army at the age of 18. This is a really big deal since you have to sign up for 25 years. You take an oath and are given your uniform. You receive your training in Rome. There you learn to fight. You train by running, wrestling, riding horses, and swimming. After your training you are posted to different places, as a soldier's life is always a busy one. You have victorious moments but there are also hard times, too. This job involved lots of travel and pretty disgusting living conditions. You just might decide that You Wouldn't Want to be a Roman Soldier.
