Roman History. Write a short story about a Roman soldier (either a legionary or an auxiliary)

This prompt by nature won’t take place in a modern setting, but the writer should carefully consider what ancient
and modern attitudes they choose to include in their work and why.
Your written response should include a discussion of which fragmented narrative from Roman history you chose
to write about and why. Why do you think it’s important for a modern audience to get a view into the life and
experiences of this person/group of people? What modern attitudes did you include in your writing vs. Roman
attitudes? How does the tension between modern and ancient morals inform your work?
short story (3-4 pages (750-1,000 words).
Double spaced, in 12pt font (Times New Roman or Helvetica), and 1-inch document margins.
