Leeds Armouries

2nd May 2017

Year 3/4 had an amazing trip to The Leeds Armouries. Everyone was completely amazed by the age of some of the weapons. Some weapons were over 1000 years old. We all took part in a workshop and this meant trying on helmets, holding shields and swords. The most disgusting part of the trip was smelling scent boxes from Roman and Stone Age times. We smelt what homes would have smelt like and it was horrible! One of the most breathtaking exhibits was seeing a huge elephant with its full armour on. Nobody realised that an elephant could be used in warfare!
