    I did a gladiator training camp, fought my brother (younger) and won, my other brother (older) was the empower, my little brother said”kill me so I don’t have to be with you sucky brothers” and my older brother spared him and said” suffer” we then fought against our teacher (literally everyone that attended the camp) and we still lost

    Terry Jones and Tony Robinson both produce awesome history shows, mostly due to the fact that they both usually take part in whatever role they're describing. I'd love to see another series like 'medieval lives' but about ancient rome.

    Step 1, completely forget about your shield, it's not there to protect you! It's just a cool looking counterbalance that should be behind you as much as possible!
