Warrior Challenge 2003 | TV Show Watchlist

Season 1, Episode 1 Romans

First Aired: May 6, 2003

Part 1 of four. Four Americans and four Brits get a taste of life as Roman soldiers as they train (and engage in simulated combat) at a restored 2nd-century Roman fort along Hadrian's Wall in England, which marked the northern border of the Roman empire. Roman soldiers were “versatile, durable and remarkably self-sufficient,” says narrator Henry Strozier. They had to be: their swords were heavy, their armor (also heavy) chafed, and their barracks were frigid. The eight manage to cope, but wouldn't want to make a career of it. Says one: “All I can say is 1thank God for technology'.”
