Living Off The Land

Roman garrisons were fully self-sustained installations, containing their own barracks, hospitals and more, being models of cleanliness and hygene. This routine was born with the fully professional army created by the emperor Augustus. A part of this setup was of course the base's granaries, known to the Romans as Horrea. Although often referred to as facilities used purely to store the troops' supply of grain, the Horrea were in reality rather simply depots for all forms of fodder and other supplies.
As with anything else Roman the Horrea were built on a very practical and efficient level, allowing for the garrison to feed itself for a very long time. They were made from either stone or wood, but aside from that differed little. The floors of a Horrea were always elevated from the ground with low walls, stone supporting pillars or others of like, making their remains easy to identify. This kept the supplies safe from rodents and ensured good ventilation. Stone Horrea were usually reinforced with a backup wall, possibly to help divert rainwater away from the depot but also due to the naturally vast size of Horrea.
The importance of Horrea should not be understated, nor should their seemingly simple design be dismissed as insignificant. These installations gave the Romans the means to store food for long periods of time, keeping them dry and cool and ready to eat - an army, after all, fights on its stomach as is said. Their design was also yet another good example of Roman ingenuity and skills at engineering. Pictured above is an illustration of supplies being managed by a Horrea, with a pair of Auxiliary soldiers standing in attendance. Below that is an image of the remains of a Horrea, this coming from the fort at Housestead.

Crisis Of The Third Century

Triggered by the murder of emperor Severus Alexander in 235 AD, the so-called "Crisis Of The Third Century" was a moment of intense instability across the Roman Empire, ending with the rise of Diocletian as sole emperor in 284 AD. During this period, the empire was wracked by dozens of usurpations and constant civil war, which resulted in Rome's enemies taking advantage of the chaos and launching attacks against them. However the biggest issue for Rome was the perennial number of civil wars, which would indeed continue to be the case well beyond the events of the 3rd Century AD.
The Roman army of the period continued to be very formidable, and ultimately Rome was never in danger of being conquered by any foreign state, none of which could rival her. Rome's enemies were scattered and mostly weak, and none had the capacity to actually conquer the vast Roman Empire. During the entire period of the Crisis, Rome suffered only a couple losses to her enemies and otherwise the vaunted Legions continued to be more than able to square-off against their opponents. The Goths and the so often highly over-hyped Sassanid Persians were both effectively defeated and driven back.
Not threatened by any of her enemies, Rome's only real threat was internal instability. Dozens of claimants to the Imperial purple came and went, raising armies to fight other Romans for power in the empire. The civil wars, along with great outbreaks of disease, weakened the Roman army far more than any foreign enemy. Eventually, whole breakaway empires formed with the Gallic Empire forming in the West and the Palmyrene Empire in the East. Both however were eventually defeated by the great soldier-emperor Aurelian in the 270s AD. Stability was finally brought by Diocletian, ending the Crisis.

PALING TERBARU

Римский Ахилл – Луций Сикций (Сициний) Дентат (лат. Lucius Siccius (Sicinius) Dentatus)
Родился в 514 г. до н. э. (предположительно), погиб в 450 г. до н. э., полулегендарный воин, являлся живым воплощением римской доблести, такого ёмкого понятия Виртус (лат. Virtus). Из плебейского рода Сикциев (у А. Геллия – Сициниев), когномен Дентат (лат. Dentatus) можно перевести буквально – “зубастый” , “рождённый с зубами” или более метафорично, но менее вероятно - “язвительный”. Начал свою карьеру со службы в армии простым солдатом, затем в 487 г. до н. э. на войне с вольсками, достиг звания старшего центуриона первого легиона - примипила (лат. Primus Pilus; одно из высших в легионе), после, в 454 г. до н. э., занял должность народного трибуна (лат. Tribunus Plebis) – высшая государственная должность которую мог занять плебей на тот момент. На которой вёл активную деятельность, в частности обвинил бывшего консула Т. Ромилия в нерадивом ведении войны и наложил на него штраф в 10 000 ассов (это дело, по мнению Плиния Старшего, было наилучшим из его деяний). Список его воинских заслуг и наград поражает воображение, по свидетельству античных авторов он участвовал в 120 сражениях, победил в 8 поединках, был 45(!) раз ранен в грудь и ни разу в спину, захватил 34 доспеха снятых с неприятеля и прочую военную добычу, за свои подвиги получил все возможные воинские награды: 18 почётных копий (лат. Hasta pura), 25 медалей (лат. Phalera), 83 ожерелья (лат. Torc), 160 золотых браслетов (лат. Armilla), 26 венков (лат. Corona), среди которых 14 гражданских (лат. Corona civilis), 8 золотых (лат. Corona Aurea), 3 стенных (лат. Corona muralis), 1 травяной (лат. Corona obsidionalis, corona graminea) – высшая военная награда за спасение войска из окружения, которой удостаивались единицы на протяжении всей римской истории, участвовал в 9 триумфах.

He's lost his bottle my opponent has pulled out of our fight as he wants more rounds (impossible it's an 8 round #title) and more money which is insane as he was already getting paid and I wasn't 😂 #boxing #boxer #fight #fighter #AndTheNew #champion #champions #gym #colchester #essex #SweetT #RomanArmy

Cattle Wars

Rome did not become an empire quickly: the path there was long and bloody, and for hundreds of years Rome's interests were confined only to the local areas around her home city. As the story goes, Rome was founded on April 753 BC by king Romulus, after he killed his brother Remus in a feud. We will never probably know if Romulus was actually a real person, but the city he created was certainly very real. We simply, however, lack much evidence for this early Roman period, as it's shrouded in myth and legend.
Rome obviously needed an army to defend herself. The ancient world was a violent place, where survival depended on military strength, and Rome was surrounded by enemies. However between the 8th and 7th centuries BC or so, Rome's defenders were quite radically different from the vaunted Legions we associate them with. The army was composed of warbands levied either to react to an enemy attack or to attack somewhere itself. These armies, if that's what we can even call them, were very small, and early Roman warfare was predicated around raiding.
Raiding was the most common form of ancient warfare, where the purpose wasn't to conquer enemy territory but to plunder it of it's wealth, livestock and such. Roman warbands were lead by the city's nobles, known as fiercely competitive, making these hit-and-run attacks also a means to gain glory and prestige over one's rival. These warbands would have perhaps had a modicum of training and disclipine, and equipment would have been rather simple as well. Battles would have at their grandest likely been large skirmishes between two such warbands.

Find of the day: Safety brooch (fibula) from the late 4th Century. We already presented to you similar fibula, but this one is couple of decades younger. Soldiers of roman army were using it it for binding their clothes.
