This competition would certainly concentrate what's left of my mind! I've never given much serious thought as to why the Roman empire is my favourite historical period. Maybe I was Caligula in my previous incarnation.

BTW I see Barbara Ewing is on the magazine cover. I'm sure she's the actress who played Bradley Hardacre's bit of rough in the comedy series "Brass". Did you ever see that? Spoof Catherine Cookson. Historical comedy at its best. Hysterical, more like.

Yes, I remember 'Brass' fondly; it was wonderfully nutty :-) Ssilent but deadly (SBD), springs to mind as one of the catchphrases

Apart from trying to work why I like 5th-6th century, I am also trying to work out what sort of angle (oh no, not them again!) would appeal to the judges of the competition ...
