In this live history documentary we bring to life the activities of a Roman Scout mission. This begins with an overview of Rome's ancient intelligence services which was composed of three layers: the procursatores, the exploratores, and the speculatores.

We then recreate a possible scout mission carried out along the Roman frontier of the Rhine. Here a scout mission is prepared to explore the potential route of the main army which seeks to march out into the lands of Germania.
