The Last Romans - Sagalassos

In my view Sagalassos is more Roman Byzantium, and so as the documentary doesn't really emphasize that, it's worth pointing out that this is historically, an Eastenders production and not really W1. 

It is however a gorgeous documentary that does the best renditions-on-ruins of Roman architecture (the Byzantines called themselves Romans and still do in parts of Greece) I've seen yet. 

If Mary Beard's speciality is bringing ordinary Romans to life, this production restores the high society architecture of Roman living to its former glory.
