Military History Photo Friday: A Most Unfortunate Roman
If you take a close look at this skull, you'll notice a metal point had punched right through it. This poor fellow currently resides in the archaeological museum in Tetouan, Morocco. Two thousand years ago it was the Roman province of Mauritania, and this man was a soldier protecting the empire against hostile tribes to the south. Sadly he made the ultimate sacrifice for his country.
