"Fight School" (Roman style)

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 13 October 2017 in Lifestyle & Culture and Portfolio.

I had a hard time thinking of where to take you all next in this long winded tour of the North East, so I decided to stay at home here in South Shields - because we haven't been here for a while.

This was one of those popular re-enactments at Arbeia Roman Fort on The Lawe, and these seven feisty men will duel to the death in honour of their Emporer! They will fight each other in the blazing sub-tropical heat of this Roman outpost (because wild animals are not allowed to perform these days).

Enjoy!
