The film is set in the 5th century, around Hadrian's Wall (which has been recreated in Co. Wicklow in Ireland - well, 3miles of it!) and is based upon the presence of Sarmatian warriors who served Rome on the Wall keeping the peace and the Picts out of Britain. Since Hollywood want their films dramatic and flashy, overall historical accuracy has occasionally gone to the wall as well, despite John's best efforts, but the overall effect of the finished production - due for release Winter 2004 - should make up for this, especially since this film is the first proper Dark Age Arthur.

Yeeouch! Those bindings look a little tight, don't you think?
IMHO, the resemblance to Natalie Portman is quite striking. Thanks to you and Ith for the pics.
