And did those sheep

And did those sheep in ancient times part 2

Well – did you see ROME on Wednesday night? I watched the first 50 minutes of the spectacular and then got bored just after Brutus had his way with the shepherdess with the sheep looking on, or queuing up, I’m not sure which. They weren’t running away!. AND before anybody else says it – yes it is quite possible that it was filmed in Cumbria. No wonder the sheep look worried. That must be what sheep worrying is all about.
I hope no cattle were harmed in the making of the series. Or tench. Or dormice.

She incidentally provided startling evidence that the Romans reached America 1500 years before Columbus: Brazilian wax . . .

I note that the camp Roman soldier featured on your blog is holding a "Bargain One Day Rover ticket voucher". Is Rover some sort of canine entertainment to be featured in subsequent episodes?

Perhaps those Romans quite enjoyed a bit of ruff?
