When the Romans arrived in Britain they soon showed the rampaging Celts the way to perfumed perfection. Poor old Celts--with their oils, and baths, and drains--those Romans really got up their noses. Sample the splendors of the public baths and a fabulous feast, or suffer with the soldiers in the frozen latrines on Hadrian's Wall in northern England. You won't forget those Roman Aromas in a hurry.
