Rome Revealed



Watched "Power of the Legion" episode (Season 1), on the ever excellent National Geographic Channel tonight. "Deadly and disciplined, Rome owed its power to its legion army. Now, new archeological finds reveal more about its invaders, killers, peacekeepers and colonists". Included a look in to the 9AD Teutoburgerwald fiasco, which location those stationed around Detmold/Osnabruck may have visited. I remember seeing the humongous statue of Hermann (the German) with, at the time, only an inkling of what had gone on there. The monument commemorates the Cherusci war chief Hermann or Armin (Latin: Arminius) and the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in which the Germanic tribes under Arminius recorded a decisive victory in 9 AD over three Roman legions under Varus.
