The boy has recently become exceptionally interested in the Romans lately. I've dug into all my old history books, we've gotten books from the library, and we've looked at pictures on line. We also created our own Roman 'costume' with a centurion 'helemt' and his binoculars slung across his chest as his 'sword'

In doing our 'research' the boy has found some of his favourite new facts:
- Romans didn't have toilet paper
- Romans used oil to clean themselves and then scraped it off with all the dirt
- Romans liked stinky fish sauce (Garum) on everything
Today's Roman activity was fort building with our blocks
