    The year is 15 CE, and the Roman Empire is prospering. Most of the credit will go to the emperor, but this success wouldn’t have been possible without loyal soldiers like Servius Felix. Robert Garland illuminates what life was like for a solider in the Roman army.
    Lesson by Robert Garland, animation by Brett Underhill.

+TED-Ed The title is misleading. I thought this video was going to be about a day in his life, and not about being a soldier in general.

Sigh. Just once I would like someone to talk about military service and its horrors as if it WEREN'T a good thing to do. You kill for money, at the behest of people who then toss you to the dogs, yet still you call it "honorable" service. Truly, our species is beyond educating.

Translations for everyone. 36 km is over 22 miles. I understand Rome expected 20 miles for travelers. 20 kg is 44lbs roughly. 15 CE is just 15 A.D. There you guys go.

The main Legion did not carry tools to help bulding a camp. They had a specific unit that did march long before the Legion and looked for a good place to build a camp. When the Legion get's there the camp is already set up. What the average soldier did instead is carrying a stake that is used for the palisade that was build to protect the camp
