I mentioned on a earler thread that the Romans complained that the men of Albion 'wrestled too strongly" or something to that effect:
Interesting, thanks Joe!
No problem Jake, he lifted that from a book I read, can't recall the name could be the Badminton book on wrestling (I've seen it cited other places too, all without attribution), I checked out Leonards book it wasn't there.
It would have been nice to see him cite some sources. And I find it odd that period documents would refer to the Roman wrestling of the time as "Graeco-Roman."
But interesting article in any case.
