We continue our Live History series which seeks to use reenactment to bring the past to life. This was made possible thanks to the awesome team at Imperium Romanum: https://www.youtube.com/c/ImperiumRomanumYT

This episode is largely based on the detailed account of Vegetius of how the Roman army of the Early Roman Empire was trained to peak efficiency. This all would have begun when a new recruit passed their probatio and set off to join their assigned legion. Over the course of the next four months they would be whipped into shape through basic training. This would first have begun with learning the basic step and engaging in long marches to instill both discipline and proper fitness. Lessons would then progress to basic drill, formation, and combat. Roman army training would continue throughout the long career of legionary soldiers and involved many other tasks such as road construction, striking camp, and conducting mock battles.

We hope you enjoyed this history documentary on basic training in the Roman army. Let us know what other topics you would like to see covered next!
