Enjoyable nonsense
21 January 2018 | by dramatechwsSee all my reviews

I am quite enjoying this so far, in spite of the rather glaring errors. Yes, I too enjoyed the rabbit - particularly the way its skin fell off. The language also annoys me, the Romans and Britons seemingly have no language barrier at all - amazing. The locations also grate, looking about as little like Kent as possible, the Welsh Slate quarry doesn't look much like Canterbury, I agree. The Cantii apparently don't bother with woad, leaving that to the Atrebates, for the convenience of colour definition. The second legion augustus fighting in Kent?Oh, and whoever styled the Britons clearly didn't read Ceasar's descriptions, not a soup strainer moustache in sight!

But some of the criticism here is nonsense. The Britons did have female warriors (Boudicca anyone?), as did other ancient peoples, the Romans most certainly had black soldiers in their ranks, and it has been conclusively proven by DNA that they were in Britain. Numidians, Nubians, Moors, there were many Africans in the Roman Army. At least one became Emperor later on.

In spite of its many issues, it's quite enjoyable though.
