Romans walked

 A review of a book about Romans and how they walked.

The intriguing aspect is perhaps speaking of the noble gait rather than the noble bearing of a man.  A feminine walk, a masculine work.  That would be an interesting thing to put into a work, and tricky to convey.  Though I don't think it would serve a purpose other than making the world very different, it would certainly do that.
