Walking Britain’s Roman Roads
History Documentary hosted by Dan Jones, published by Channel 5 in 2020 – English narration
Dan Jones explores Britain’s Roman roads.
1) Watling Street
Dan begins with the country’s oldest and longest, which runs from the Kent coast to Shropshire and passes through key sites of Emperor Claudius’ invasion and Boudicca’s rebellion.
2) Ermine Street
Dan explores the historic Roman road of Ermine Street, which connected the cities of London and York. Along the way, he examines religion in Roman Britain.
3) Dere Street
Dan explores the Roman road of Dere Street, the northern-most Roman road in Britain running from York to Scotland, and Stanegate, a key east-west route that runs alongside the great defensive barrier of Hadrian’s Wall. His journey reveals the story of Roman military and its colonial ambitions in Britain.
4) Fosse Way
Dan travels along the Fosse Way, a route that stretches for 230 miles through the heart of England from Exeter to Lincoln.
5) Ermin Way
Dan travels the historic Roman road of Ermin Way, which links the two Roman towns of Calleva Atrebatum and Glevum, now known as Silchester and Gloucester. Not to be confused with Ermine Street, which runs from London to York, Ermin Way is arguably Britain’s most industrial Roman road.
6) Stane Street
Dan travels along Stane Street, which runs 67 miles from London to Chichester, and discovers what led the Romans to abandon Britain in the Fifth Century.
