Reading through a history book it dawned on me that the Romans invented or introduced an awful lot of stuff to the UK. Some of this has been overlooked. So in an attempt at future historians getting there facts correct I thought we might enlighten them with some lesser known facts. My first corrections for the history books are: 1. It has come to light through the study of wooden "writing pads" that in one particular outpost out of 750 odd blokes, 450 ish were either absent or sick. So the Romans invented the "sicky" 2. One bored squaddie sat in his far flung outpost on Hadrians wall found a manky old chicken one day. Showing the true culinary flair that all soldiers have he put it in a pot, added all the different spices from the Roman empire that he had to hand and muttered the immortal words, "fcuk me lads, grab your racing spoons, this shit's good" His comrades where so impressed with this new culinary delight they named it in honour of their camp. They where stationed at Vindolanda fort at the time. 3. To stop the bothersome tribe called the Caledonians from continually bimbling south and nicking all the wealth to be found down there the Romans built a big fcuk off wall. This is called Hadrians wall. So by default the Romans invented by this simple method a new country. Today we call it Scotland. Anyone else got some new Roman facts for the history books?
