On Wednesday January 13th,
the Classical Society hosted a talk on the Roman Army by Ben Kane, in the Silk
Hall. After starting life as a vet, Ben has sold a million copies of his
historical novels, and has gained an intimate knowledge of the Roman Army.
After giving a brief talk at the Primary School, he held an audience of
most of the Shells rapt, before facing a forest of hands when it came to
questions and signing a healthy number of books. We intend to have him back.
