The Task

Using the internet resources to the left, you must provide the following documents to Vercingetorix:

1.  A map of the Roman army's camp with directions to Caesar's headquarters from an identifiable spot on the map
2. A drawing of the standards carried by the Romans, which you have stolen, being the master spy that you are
3. A hand-drawn picture of a legionary, based on your sneaky observation
4.  A copy of Caesar's plan for tomorrow's attack, so that Vercingetorix can foil Caesar's plans
Introduction

Your commander's name is Vercingetorix, a famous army leader from Gallia (ancient France).  The infamous Julius Caesar has invaded your territory and set up his camp near your army's headquarters.  Vercingetorix has chosen you to be his spy so that the Gallic forces can learn as much as possible about their opponents' armies & fighting styles before tomorrow's engagement.
