Roman war with the Dacians - art by Giuseppe Rava ~ Of special note is the extra armour the legionaries wear on their arms. This was developed during the Dacian wars to help protect the Romans from the falx, a scythe like weapon the Dacians used with great effect against the Romans' Lorica segmentata armour. It sliced right through!
Roman roads, together with Roman aqueducts and the vast standing Roman army, constituted the three most impressive features of the Roman Empire. In Britain, as in their other provinces, the Romans constructed a comprehensive network of paved trunk roads (i.e. surfaced highways) during their nearly four centuries of occupation (43 - 410 AD).
