Slowly falling down the steps of antiquity with a smile on my face...
Infamy, infamy.....
New VLOG! All about the aspis, the hoplite shield,
A guide to the Roman legionary helmet, it's that simple.
Ahh, the gladius. Where it came from and how it evolved, and a themed T-shirt for effect.
The pugio, or dagger, turns out there might be a bit more to it than you expect
The Roman shield, or scutum and how it developed into a vital piece of kit

No expense spent here on a series of videos covering the three main battles featuring Hannibal and the Romans
Trebia (with themed winter jumper)
Trasimene                                                                                         and Cannae
