Hi my name is Tyler Ceaser. I am a 21 year old Roman soldier. Earlier today we were fighting the Celtics. They are good fighters but they are completly different then us. They have different armor, clothing, weapons and their village. You would think that since they have worse items then us that they would be horrible fighters but they are good. I dont understand how they are good fighters.
We, the Romans have a helmet with bronze so it would be harder to penitrat then metal, which is what the Celts use. Our sheilds are made of wood but we have a metal typer peice in the middle to help deflect strickes and the Celts have a sheild which is also made of wood and covers whole body because its so long. We have two spears and the point is ten inches and we also have a sharp short sword and the Celtics only have one spear but the point is spiral and they have a short sword too. In the bath house we would either be in a bath or on the toilet and we would chat to others near or right next to us. We would talk about government or polotics or just about life so we wern't just war people we would talk, we had a social life. While we are at the barracks we found mice and we would stuff them and eat them. If we wanted a midnight snack we would just a mouse. We had amphora which was a clay pot which we put oil, wine and other liquids in.
The Celtics had large herds of animals to eat but also to show wealth. They would get herbs to eat but they would also use herbs for medicine. If someone got hurt in battle or got hurt from the village they might put medicine or the herbs on the wound. They made thread so they could make clothing so they could keep warm. Although a good thing about the Celtics is that people died young and the ones that didn't would become wise and tell stories.
Now you know about the Celtics and us and how much different we are. I cant tell how the Celts are just as good as we are. It seems like we have better and stronger equipment then they do. I hope that are next battle against the Celtics we destory their village and wipe them out forever because the Romans are the best fighters on the mediterrainian border and we will later be the best warriors in the world. I am going now to hopefully finish this fight against the Romans and the Celtics.
