Great article Vicky - thanks for posting it.    Speaking of Romans in Britain, have you seen the movie with Clive Owen, King Arthur?  It depicts Arthur as a Roman commander who is a native Briton and he ends up coming back to Britain and defending Hadrian's Wall against an invading Saxon tribe.  It is really a kind of non-believable movie but I like it because it is about Hadrian's Wall and Roman Britain.

I liked it, too.  Indeed, some parts were quite ridiculous, but there is SO little about Roman Britian in movies, and I'm so new to it overall, that I enjoyed it very much, too.  And of course, Kiera Knightly prances around half naked, so my hubby was happy enough to watch it with me. LOL
