17 – Advancement and Occupation

Rome is going to start expanding her borders. Why? Because why not? Well, it's actually a little more complicated than that, and we're going to get into it in this episode. Consequently, Emperor Antoninus will build his own wall in Britain far beyond Emperor Hadrian's Wall. These Romans were nothing if not competitive. We will have to see what the people of Britain think of this.

    You mentioned Horrible Histories at the beginning of this episode. I have to say I LOVE these books, and there is also a TV show with 5 seasons that is just great, I absolutely love it, and I have my university degree in History, that should give some idea of the quality. You can watch them on Youtube as well. Thanks for doing these, I have been enjoying listening to them while I work :)
