Summary
In this highly entertaining adventure, Kate, Eddie, and Angus travel back in time to see if they have what it takes to be a Roman soldier. Under the guidance of an ancient career counselor and one of the Roman Empire's most intimidating centurions, they are inducted as newbie legionaries and discover firsthand the highs (sacking a city!) and lows (sharing a bum sponge) of life in the Roman army. After passing their initial training challenges, our young crew discover how to use a shield as brass knuckles, how to operate a catapult, and how to avoid a javelin in the skull
