Cool, I love that stuff. Last year, I watched a lecture series on DVD called 'Battles of the Ancient World.' It was really good. For example: if I remember this right, in the archaeological digs for the Teutonberg forest (?), the battle where three imperial legions got wiped out, they found bronze cow bells that had the remains of plants in. They had silenced the movement of the cattle by stuffing the bells with grass.

Less cowbell!

If you like roman history in general, you might like Suetonius's The Twelve Caesars, which has all the groovy ones in, like Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero etc.
