I apologize if I misread the Tumblr attributions, but re: Brave/Rapunzel, I think you wrote "And of course, the former Romans living and working in Scotland at the time would have no written record of their activities or appearance because no one cared." Please google: Roman soldier letters. The first result I got was from a POC, and was quite cool. Then add "Scotland" to your search. Look for the Vindolanda Letters. Again, I'm sorry if I misattributed that statement to you. Thanks.

OH MY GOD

THERE’S SO MUCH DOCUMENTATION

Incoming mail (tablet 346) is also revealing: ‘I have sent you … pairs of socks from Sattua, two pairs of sandals and two pairs of underpants.’  It was obviously a bit cold for soldiers on the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire.

THE SOCKS ARE STILL THERE:

They wore them with sandals, apparently, before they gave up and went to boots.

I JUST CANNOT…I HAD NO CLUE ABOUT ANY OF THIS.

THEY JUST KEEP FINDING THEM:

40,000+ ROMAN SOLDIERS IN SCOTLAND: WE’RE FREEZING PLEASE SEND MORE SOCKS.

THIS IS THE BEST WRONG I’VE EVER BEEN.
