Twenty years ago, the Duke of Buccleuch discovered that the remains of a huge Roman fort might lie just a few hundred metres from his grand home, Drumlanrig Castle near Dumfries. If so, it is one of the most northerly ever found and could change the face of Roman history in Scotland.

The "contentions" between Tony, Phil, Stuart and the others is just delightful. It does pique your interest into how the dig will go, but you can tell it's a bunch of friends ribbing each other and who actually respect each other. A much better way to keep attention than big music, dramatized, overblown disagreements and loud sting sound effects.

This show is unique in that there is no "plot" and no "characters." The only "action" is what occurs on the dig. The people are just themselves doing a fascinating task, and from the first time I saw it I was hooked. It isn't my first time dealing with artifacts, but the sensation of holding a tool in my hand that was used by someone thousands of years ago remains a thrill. It's really like shaking hands with them. This show adds more information than I can get from a collection of Native American arrowheads as the specialists like Helen Geake and Phil give comments. Watching Phil, on another show, turn a chunk of stone into a hand axe in a few minutes time is amazing, then he butchered a chunk of pork with one of the flakes into chops, which they ate for supper. How could anyone not be interested in that?

The Dacian Draco was the standard ensign of troops of the ancient Dacian people, which can be seen in the hands of the soldiers of Decebalus in several scenes depicted on Trajan's Column in Rome, Italy. It has the form of a dragon with open wolf-like jaws containing several metal tongues. The hollow dragon's head was mounted on a pole with a fabric tube affixed at the rear. In use, the draco was held up into the wind, or above the head of a horseman, where it filled with air and gave the impression it was alive while making a shrill sound as the wind passed through its strips of material. It's Dacian not Roman!
@Rocsanna Yıl önce
I came to the comments to say the same thing, you could even see it in the depiction on the column that the solduer holding it was not Roman. But the site was around Trajan's time, so maybe he thought it effective and pinched the idea from the Dacians.

I'd be happy when someone says....." suggesting a dig in several more spots, in that typically British roundabout way with words, with that dark grey sky in the background, and these two men in the bright light of day reminds of that typical atmosphere in Scotland, weatherwise. That picture is one to be remembered, fit for placing in a frame, don't you think? These episodes are truly full of gems, even when no finds are showing up that are revealing much.

What an interesting reenaction with the Draco. This must in fact be terrifying for a non-horseman local iron age person in England. Maybe the roman troops failed so terribly in Germany because of the landscape, they couldn't use their gimmics (and the hardened germanic warriors of course). Not to say that the scots weren't brave sobs, but as I am from Germany and know the maps, I can imagine the landscape of south Germany being a problem for the troops. I love the reenacting an educational material in these docmentaries!

@sarahwatts7152 2 yıl önce
At the 24 minute mark, they talk about how the fort was likely never attacked because the Scots preferred guerilla warfare, and how building the fort kept soldiers occupied. But wouldn't the fort have provided a safe haven from otherwise constant guerilla attacks? That the fort was never besieged doesn't necessarily mean it never had a military purpose: it means that you get well rested soldiers who don't have to worry about Scots picking them off in their sleep. You get the safe haven plus the intimidation of the Romans taking over the landscape in such a conspicuous way.
@TommyGlint 2 yıl önce
I thought exactly the same thing. An open camp, even one with just a palisade, would invite just that; hit-and-run attacks. A minor thing, but it would also put a strain on a relatively small garrison regarding guard duty.

The Sarmatian cavalry did n͟o͟t͟ introduce the dragon to Britain, it was already here, much like how the pottery made by the locals which were sold to the army due to convenience, they also adopted local imagery, the dragon is a symbolic image to the Brythonic Celts which is why the Welsh flag has the dragon on it, it was used by one ruler with another, (remember also that Southern Scotland was Ancient Brythonic territory (Yr Hen Ogledd) rather than the Picts and that the Brythonic tribes were pushed Westward by the Anglo-Saxons towards Wales and Cornwall after the Romans left.. to which, their cultures, somewhat survived through the language.)

One dislike; possibly due to a lack of Roman Pot..? 🤣🤣🤣

The Dragon standard was probably the forerunner of the JU87 or Stuka with its sirens on its undercarriage.

Run Robbie, run. Enter stage right, jog away stage left. The fat controller will space the team out in the field, look! diggers over there, Geophys over here. All for you to hop between.

91-94% of my DNA comes from Great Britain/Ireland. (I've had this random 3% that has changed from Norway, Sweden, and Denmark...but I've gone back far enough in my genealogy to know that there's nary a surname from that area...which leads me to believe that it's a Viking remnant from the Danelaw area of Great Britain.) At any rate, I watch these in fascination, learning about my deep ancestry. As an interesting profile looks very much like the coin profile in the intro...and physically, I look like a 5'11" Greek or Roman goddess statue I'm left to believe that some of my British ancestry harks back to the Roman occupation even if it doesn't show up in my ancestry report.

@@alasdairmmorrison74 In college--many years ago--Takis Musinedez, past director of the National Greek Theater, guest directed the Orestean Trilogy at the university I attended...and I auditioned. After the auditions, he completely revamped the show, cast me as Athena, and said "Only you can portray Athena!" I was 19 and had no idea of the magnitude of his comment at the time. I've since seen Greek statues, and it's rather like looking into a mirror. I just thought I was some non-petite freak of nature, but no...I fit a long-lost ideal of womanhood.

They talk about people grinding corn. I'm puzzled about that. I thought corn was a New World vegetable. Am I wrong about that?
@iamblackthorne 2 yıl önce
Corn is the British term for grain of any kind.
@Jobotubular Yıl önce
and new world corn is not a vegetable, it's a grass
@RKHageman Yıl önce
It’s a nice example of something called “lexical drift” - the meanings of words shift as a result of time and/or migration. British English: “corn” = grain, any kind. American English: “corn” = maize (one specific grain, Zea mays).
