In 2000, two metal detectorists discovered an intact Roman battlefield at the Harzhorn hill in north-central Germany, hundreds of miles beyond the imperial frontier. This video explores the mysterious campaign that brought the Romans so far from Rome. For a reconstruction of the battle itself, see the second part: https://youtu.be/Tt0kLwSAMTU

The second part of this series is excellent too....recreates the actual battle in detail... fascinating how they were able to piece together the action
Enjoy!

I really enjoyed the battle description.  A hard life for a soldier.

Vincent:
 :Yes, Me too that second part of the actual time line of the battle sequence is simply incredible on how they determined what happened on that day.
You are correct, a hard life in Ancient Times. If you made it past infancy, the average lifespan was perhaps 20s or 30s...not very long.
Thank for your comment
