The Timeblazers travel back in history to learn what things were like for soldiers in real life. First they travel to the year 114 BCE, when Centurions trained Legionnaires vigorously. Next they meet the Vikings, who hailed from northern Europe, what is now Scandinavia, and who were great sailors and fierce warriors. During the Middle Ages, Viking tribes were feared throughout most of Europe. Then the Timeblazers travel to the War of 1812, fought between the United States and Great Britain. It was this war that gave America the song "The Star-Spangled Banner."
