Why The Roman Invasion Of Britain Was Beneficial For Both | King Arthur's Britain | Timeline

Francis Pryor examines the history of Britain near the end of the Roman occupation. The first instalment focuses on Britain under Roman rule, revealing a much greater degree of collaboration with the natives than was previously recognised.

Sheep-farming archaeologist, Francis Pryor, presents a historical series which explores Britain A.D, the British national character and the ultimate British icon King Arthur.

Finding new and previously unexplained evidence, Francis Pryor overturns the idea that Britain reverted to a state of anarchy and disorder after the Romans left in 410 AD. Instead of doom and gloom Francis discovers a continuous culture that assimilated influences from as far a field as the Middle East and Constantinople. Through scrutinising the myth of King Arthur to find out what was really going on when the Romans left, Francis is confronted by evidence that confounds traditional views of the 'Dark Ages'. There was also no invasion of bloodthirsty Anglo Saxons, rampaging across the countryside. With new archaeological evidence Francis discovers a far more interesting story.

In this history documentary we explore one of the lesser known chapters of Roman history during the reign of Emperor Augustus. The event in question was the forgotten war of the Roman invasion of Arabia. This was brought about after Augustus had consolidated his rule and was looking for new ways to win gold and glory for the people. The campaigns into Germania had become tiresome slogs with little material benefit. As such he turned to the newly minted province of Egypt and its lucrative eastern trade routes. Emperor Augustus ordered the prefect, Aelius Gallus to venture forth into the lands of ancient Arabia. The documentary follows the Roman Army as it prepares for the military campaign and eventually invades.

Stay tuned for more episodes on Rome's Forgotten Wars like our previous episode on the Great Illyrian Revolt. What other unknown wars should we cover next?

The Fall of Rome & The Arrival of the Saxons - Early Medieval History

We know a lot about Roman Britain, and we know a lot about Anglo-Saxon England, but the period in between is a bottomless pit of misinformation. Is it possible to find out what happened after Rome abandoned Britain? Or will it forever be the British Dark Ages?

12 Archaeological Discoveries From Ancient Rome

From rare skeletons holding hands to a lost walled city, here are 12 archaeological discoveries from ancient Rome.

12. Skeletons Holding Hands
Discovered in Modena at a cemetery in 2009, a couple was found buried together, laying side by side, holding hands. Dating back 1,600 years, everyone assumed that it was a man and a woman, with the female’s head turned to gaze at her male companion.

11. Ancient Dagger
While working in Germany last year, an archaeology intern named Nico Calman unearthed a 2,000-year-old dagger that the Ancient Romans used in battle against a Germanic tribe. The artifact, which dates back to the first century A.D., was found at the Haltern am See (Haltern at the Lake) archaeological site, still in its sheath.

10. Domus Aventino
While earthquake-proofing some luxury apartments in Rome in 2014, workers unexpectedly found the buried domus, or roof, of a lavish ancient villa. Estimated to be around 2,000 years old, the elaborately decorated structure was likely buried for centuries.

9. Torlonia Marbles
A series of over 90 ancient Greek and Roman marble works recently came out of storage and went on display in the Palazzo Caffarelli overlooking the Roman Forum. They come from the 620-piece Torlonia Collection, which is largely considered one of the world’s greatest private classical art collections. After years and years hidden away, people were finally allowed to see them.

8. Roman Building In Switzerland
When you think of the Ancient Roman empire, you probably do not think of Switzerland. But the empire’s reach once extended there too, as evidenced by the recent discovery of a large Roman building in the country’s southwestern region.

6. Vindolanda Chalice
Along Hadrian’s wall, a former Roman defensive fortification in what is now northern England, Archaeologists recently discovered an ancient, graffiti-covered lead chalice dating back to the fifth century. It’s covered in religious symbols, including crosses, a priestly figure, angels, fish, and a whale, and represents the first known example of Christian graffiti on an artifact found in Britain.

7. SACRIFICED SOLDIER’S ARMOR
In September, archaeologists working in Kalkriese, Germany discovered a near-complete set of Roman armor. The cuirass, which consists of a breastplate and backplate, dates back to 9 B.C., when Germanic tribes wiped out three Roman legions.

5. Preserved Brain Cells
A recently released study details the discovery of glassified brain cells in a Mount Vesuvius victim. And yes, that is glassified like glass. Don’t worry I’ll explain! Published in the journal PLOS One, the findings reveal the identifiable presence of brain structures within a black, glassy material found in the skull of a young man who died in the volcanic eruption that destroyed Herculaneum and Pompeii in 79 A.D.

4. Crucifixion Nails?
In November 1990, archaeologists in southern Jerusalem found the burial cave of Caiaphas, the man who, according to the Gospels of the New Testament, ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Alongside his remains were two Roman-era iron nails, which some researchers believe may have been used in Jesus’s death, theorizing that Caiaphas wished to be buried with the objects because he felt haunted by his decision to kill Christ.

3. Mosaic Floor
Earlier this year, nearly a century after the remains of a third-century villa were discovered near the northern Italian city of Verona, archaeologists found the perfectly-preserved remains of a Roman mosaic floor. They had recently resumed digging at the site, located in a hilly section of the town of Negrar di Valpolicella, long after it was abandoned following the excavation of the villa in 1922.

2. Paving Stones Revealed By Sinkhole
In April of this year, a sinkhole opened up in front of Rome’s Pantheon, revealing ancient paving stones that experts were previously unaware of. Measuring eight feet (2.5 meters) deep, the 10-square-foot (1 meter2) opening contained seven travertine slabs, which were laid over 1,000 years ago.

1. Falerii Novi
Situated roughly 31 miles (50 km) north of Rome, the well-organized, walled Roman city of Falerii Novi became buried and forgotten about over time. In a recent study, archaeologists used ground-penetrating radar to identify and map the ancient towns covered ruins.

A Day In The Life Of An Edwardian Family | Turn Back Time: The Family | Absolute History

Three families experience life across five different eras of British history. The Edwardian era pushes the three modern families to their limits.

There is a rude awakening for the Polo-playing Meadows family, who take on the role of being an Edwardian working-class family and must cope with the impact of poverty on their lives, as they and their two daughters adapt to a new role as breadwinners.

The Taylor family live the lives of their ancestors as an upper-middle-class Edwardian household. Formality and etiquette mean the Taylor family must live very separate lives and mum Adele struggles as her familiar role as wife and working mum is stripped away.

Finally, the Golding family are desperately hanging on to their newly acquired social status as a middle-class family, but for dad Ian it is a chance to put his theories on the benefits of discipline into practice.

The Mary Beard Controversy: Race and Roman Britain | Dr. Rebecca Futo Kennedy

In this episode Dr. Rebecca Futo Kennedy discusses and explains the Mary Bear Controversy.

In a brief BBC cartoon posted to YouTube late last December, a high-ranking Roman soldier and his family tackle the challenges of daily life in ancient Britain. The dad is off helping build the famed Hadrian's wall at the province's far northern edge; the son tries to make right for losing his father's scarf. Everyone ends up happy ever after.

Yet benign as its plot may seem, this little film — which, sadly is only available for British viewers — has stirred up a big fight on social media. And it all revolves around the color of the leading characters' skin.

Many celebrities and commentators such Nassim Nicholas Taleb viciously attacked the cartoon and historians who supported the underlying complexities displayed by the animation and that is History isn't simple, it is complicated and no empire is Homogenous.

Dr. Mary Beard a sweetheart to us all who study ancient history commented her support for the cartoon and its accuracy and was in short attacked by trolls and certain controversial figures including Dr. Nassim Taleb who attempted to discredit her and her stance, in the end we all take what side that we wish but Dr. Beard obviously held her own and revealed that not only is history complicated and that DNA tests can be manipulated to suit a variety of agendas but that there is a growing movement today dedicated to distorting the past less colorful.

Scotland: Rome's Final Frontier (BBC)

Were the ancient Scottish tribes too much for the Roman Empire? Or was Scotland simply not worth conquering? Archaeologist Dr Fraser Hunter looks back on three centuries of contact and conflict with the Roman invaders. The first Tay Bridge, the first depiction of tartan and forgotten Roman camps that once held thirty-five thousand men. A story of a superpower pitted against tribesmen and warlords, and one with fascinating modern parallels.

History Documentary hosted by Fraser Hunter, published by BBC in 2012.

The story of Roman Lincoln.

The Romans founded Lincoln in 48 AD and stayed here till 410 Ad when they evacuated Britain to help support Rome which was under attack.

The Romans in Britannia, 43 AD to 410 AD

Talking about the age of invasion will not only bring in tears and regrets, but it can revive a sense of identity if not patriotism. The British Isles, before 1066 AD, were an object of desire to all that the sea might bring. Invaders from different directions came to exploit the riches of island, but also to instill their practices and manners.
This short trailer is intended to reveal the influence of the Romans.
