Interactive video lesson plan for: Nets - not such a great idea in battle

Activity overview:

Nets in battle may not have been very effective. If spears and shields are better - use those. Gladiatorial kit is for show-duels.

Here I ramble for a bit and speculate about my reasons for why nets were not used more in battle. I wasn't there, and I don't actually know one way or the other, but the evidence for net-use in battle is poor. I describe practical considerations that might explain why other weapons were preferred in this context. Yes, the retiarius used one on the sands of the arena, but he was doing so in order to entertain, not to win at any cost.
