Battlefield Britain question

I'm watching a repeat of the Boudicca revolt episode. They talk about Legionnaries using a multiple wedge formation, yet from my own books, I've not come across this formation used, certainly not as 1st century AD. Anyoe know what source they were using?

Why not do this properly, like the Razzies?

Can I reccomend that a new poll is organised, listing the other TV productions of the year (Bone kickers, Merlin, etc.? Give it til end of December and then press release it - it's likely to be picked up too.

I have it on authority of head of conservation at the Museum of London that period black dyes do indeed rot cloth, which is why so few clothes survive that are black, and why certain articles will only see where the black thread was, rather than the thread itself.

Maybe you should grow up before doling out playground insults on a public forum. Also, for someone who runs a company providing kit to show contempt for a potential custom sector is short-sighted business sense, or maybe you are happy to be just a hobbyist who happens to sell on his wares?

I've been tempted by a shawm, but also a bombarde, as I lived in Brittany for a bit, and am a fan of the likes of Schelmish/Tri Yann/Corvus Corax/Alan Stivell, etc. It'll be a good addition to our incipient musical element in the Shire.
