    Legionnaire Drusius Maximus dropped his Gladius and dented the flutes on the handle. He will be flogged and stand ten extra guards.

    Pat, When I receive the pics from Dave, I put them through Photoshop change the file to jpg. Then upload them to site using a desktop computer running Windows 10, and it seems to work fine.

    Dave, good find there mate, it's in immaculate condition considering its age, what a lift you must get pulling that out of the ground. It was definitely cutting edge technology of its time, short stabbing weapon designed for use within the confines of a Testudo the Roman method of unit defence when under attack . Unit protected by using the oblong shields overhead ,front ,and sides, seemed to work very well from what I've read about it.
    keep digging mate, it's interesting stuff because it's real, not some modern reproduction. Love it !

    If I use the IPad, I get 403 quite regular, but the old HP desk top seem to do the trick. Don't really know why to be honest, it runs on Windows 10 with automatic updates.
