More Recruiting With Centurion Crastinus

First-rank centurion Gaius Crastinus recruited for Caesar's Legio X once again at North Central High School in Indianapolis.  As always, the students were great.  It never fails that they get excited to try authentic reproduction Roman weaponry.  I know I would have loved this when I was a teen!  After hearing about the ins and outs of the Roman army, they have the chance to use the armor in battle formation and marching drills.  Some even get the chance to engage in battle with foam gladii and real shields.
