What Weapons and Armor did the Romans use in The Battle of Ziles?
The Battle of Ziles was known as The Battle of Zela. It took place on August 2, 47 BC in Zile. Zile is now a small hilltop town in the Tokat Province of Northern Turkey. The Ancient Romans were lead to victory by Julius Caesar. Rome was one of the most powerful empires of the Ancient world. Romans built their strong military with courage, duty and honor. Because the Romans had all kinds of different weapons they could chose what would benefit them most in a battle. Today, we have the same option, we get to determine what will benefit us more during a war. Whether is is a rifle or a grenade. Ancient Romans used quite a few weapons and armor, each battle they had a new type of weapon. Today we are protected by new and improved weapons.
This project is coming along well. I have learned how The Batlle of Ziles was won and how Julius Caesar was involved. I ended up with a ton of information and I think the hardest part is going to be choosing what I want to talk about. I feel like it is important for me to discuss the weapons and tactics that were used in The Battle of Ziles. Julius Caesar made a huge mistake in this battle and it almost costed him his life. He actually pulled almost all of the soldiers off the front line and sent them to do their everyday things. The enemy moved in quick and he made a fast decision to get all soldiers back. It could of gone the other way.
