Default Wow! Wow !!!

I just watch a Trailer of a Movie coming out and it's about a time in History
I always thought about the Ninth Legion in AD 117 ,,many a story about
the Legion makes it hard to prove it I think because England and Scotland
did discard that part History,but the Movie looks great

I love what is said about the Legion
They had Disappeard from History to become a Legend

It's an adaption of the 1954 book by Rosemary Sutcliffe (written for ten year olds!)

So?
You did say it was an adaptation.

Good ideas lie in small corners...

I'm curious about this film as I do like the story, although Simon is probably my favourite of Rosemary Sutcliffe's books.

It's called Eagle of the Ninth ,,good trailer too
I know P;ter is was written for 10yrs old ,,but the Rumour has been around,,
in Scotland while they were digging to make a Club they found Roman Graves
they said'' Too Heavy to remove '' and build over them ,showed a photo of
Pipers and Dancers ,,dancing over the Graves like to think for respect ,,But
they also hated the Romans ,,I really don't think they realy tried
There was another film made also Legion of the Damned.
