On completion of the Adventurers module, they can apply to take part in the full DofE scheme and get started on their non-expedition sections.

The Colosseum could hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, having an average audience of some 65,000; it was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles such as mock sea battles for a short time as the hypogeum was filled in with mechanisms for other activities. https://t.co/9fADBTYgVs 10:09 AM - 20 Feb 2019
Ancient Romans traveled by land and sea. From earliest times the Romans displayed remarkable skill at building and engineering. They constructed bridges across the river Tiber, aqueducts to supply Rome with water, and sewers to drain the forum and keep the city healthy. https://t.co/vdrFUiSZdf 10:05 AM - 20 Feb 2019
