Britain - Outpost of Empire
The Romans do not wait for war to begin before handling their arms, nor do they sit idle in peacetime and take action only when the emergency comes. Their battle-drills are no different from the real thing. It would not befar from the truth to call their drills bloodless battles, their battles bloody drills. (JOSEPHUS) In the fifth of six programmes, Malcolm Billings and Mark Hassall tell the story of the Roman colonisation of Britain and describe how archaeologists are piecing together a picture of life during those 400 years when this country was a province of Imperial Rome.
