U.S. Army Special Forces 'Green Beret' combat veteran, Discovery Channel presenter and survivalist Mykel Hawke takes a look at the kind of equipment every Roman legionary was sent to war with over 1,500 years ago. How does it stack up to military standards today?
In this documentary short for Total War: ROME II, Hawke discovers exactly the sort of kit that would have kept the Roman army alive and fighting fit on the front line. From rations and footwear to swords and shields, each individual unit of eight fighting men represented the cutting edge of military might at the time and helped make the Roman Empire the first superpower.
