      Their huge empire stretched all the way from northern Britain to the
      Egyptian desert. But it seems the all-conquering Romans had an
      unexpected Achilles' Heel in the grim British weather. Settlers suffered
      from poor health due to a lack of sunlight and a poor diet after they
      established Londinium in the 1st century AD, according to scientists.
