What have the Romans ever done for us?

Hundreds of volunteers are needed to help create a line of light along the length of Hadrian's Wall to mark the purported 1600th anniversary of the departure from Britain of Roman legions under Constantine III. Organisers are looking for 500 people to help create the spectacle on 13 March, which will light up the wall from one end to the other. Each of the volunteer "illuminators" will be responsible for one of the 500 individual points of light that will be placed at 820ft (250m) intervals along the route of the 84-mile (135km) Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail. There is something gloriously pointless about this, although it will undoubtedly be a spectacle. One has to ask though - apart from building a fucking big wall to keep the Jocks out, what have the Romans ever done for us……?
