Maybe it didn't look exactly like a battle from ancient Greece, but dozens of history students from Norwich University had a great time attempting the formations and battle technique of the day.
Assembling on the Upper Parade Ground in front of an enthusiastic crowd, students formed into a phalanx -- a tight formation of interlocked shields with weapons protruding from the second line -- with a smaller force attacking. Using this formation, Greek soldiers ("Hoplites") could face one another as powerful forces under relatively protective conditions.
While known for their discipline, the students often broke ranks for the sheer fun of it, and the result was far from a clash of disciplined forces. But what a way to spend a class!
