Don't know if any of you have seen this documentary; it premiered in the US in September, but is due to be shown on the National Geopgraphic Channel on Wed night (18th) at 9pm, though the website says 27th Jan, so not sure when it'll be on! It was made following the discovery of a burial site at Vindolanda in a barrack room, dating from the beginning of the 3rd century AD; the barracks were occupied by the 4th Cohort of Gauls. The director is one Rick King; it was filmed on location at Vindolanda, Arbeia Roman Fort (South Shields) and in Gloucestershire.

“conscribe te militem in legionibus. pervagare orbem terrarium. inveni terras externas. cognosce miros peregrines. eviscera eos” ̴ “Join the legions, see the world, travel to foreign parts, meet interesting and exotic people, and disembowel them.”
