Romans Conquer York!

Take eight intrepid staff and volunteers from YAC and the CBA, add in Roman tunics, helmets, spears, shields, swords, a standard and a replica Roman trumpet and you have a crack Roman unit, otherwise known as a contubernium, ready to conquer six laps of York’s City Walls in aid of the Dig Deep for YAC campaign!  And conquer it they did on Wednesday 1st February!
