Having brought the Dacians to heel, the legions then crossed into Astoria, conquering it in a mere six months of campaigning and bringing a reported 10,000 slaves back to Rome to feed the lions in the Coliseum.
The Roman connection having being made, I thought I’d post a view from Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland.
And did you know that one of the favoured sites for the location of the Battle of Mons Badonicus – Arthur’s final victory over the Saxons – is also on Hadrian’s Wall about twenty miles west of this place? Don’t I know some interesting stuff? (And now somebody who knows even more is going to tell me that Astoria really was some place the Romans conquered. I can’t be bothered to Google it.)
