Adventures in the later Roman Empire

Following on from my posts last week (here and here) about new discoveries at the third century Roman battlefield at Kalefeld, Germany, the press conference yesterday has had a fair amount of coverage today. Best of all is Welt Online which has some splendid pictures of the dolabra with the inscription LEGIIII. It is also worth having a look at Kreiszeitung.de and HNA.de. It remains both surprising and depressing that a find of this importance has had pretty much no coverage at all in the English-speaking press.
