Yes, I remember watching this back in 2013 (when it was posted for the first time by the Melbourne Museum - that's where I live!) :)

I have to say, though, there would've been much more noise in the city throughout the day. All we can hear are timbers creaking, people shouting, and dogs barking. Where are the sounds of market, or of legionaries marching or centurions on horseback?

I think they went with generalized sounds for a reason... because if they went with "realistic per the situation" - there'd be screams of horror, screams of dying, etc., which would have made it less likely to be watched.

Um - it's a bit late now, sure - but I'd like to point out, for the record, that I don't actually live in the Melbourne Museum. :P :lol: That would be weird. ;)
