Video: A Roman Soldier Prepares Dinner

Just discovered the Youtube channel Invicta, which has some great historical video series: Everyday Moments, How They Did It, Deadly Moments in History, Massive Battles and more.

As this video points out, when talking about armies we tend to think about the actual battles and logistics of why one side won/lost. But just as important (maybe even more important) was the logistics of feeding said army. This is a quick look at what a Roman legionary would have eaten and how the food was prepared.
