Editorial Foreword
This we hope will be the first of many UNRV Roman History newsletters. We feel the growing number of visitors to our site and the sheer volume of information that is now available (150 MB) makes it sometimes impossible to keep pace with everything available on UNRV.com. The newsletter will be published periodically and for occasional breaking news like competitions or special offers to our subscribers. On average we expect it to be one newsletter every two months.

The launch of the UNRV.com site has come a long way and the forum is also picking up with many interesting conversations, so please be sure to register and contribute!

1. Visiting the Roman town Aguntum
===============================
On the last weekend in July, I (viggen) was invited by a friend (Monika) (who volunteers there as part of her archaeological studies) to visit her at the Archaeological Park Aguntum near Lienz (Tyrol). Next to the museum, which shelters a selection of Aguntum findings, is also a vast excavation area where archaeologists are busy digging (one can actually watch them at their work.) Aguntum is a mysterious place indeed, archaeologists are baffled by several findings and haven`t found an answer to all the questions yet...

2. New pages on UNRV.com
========================
The last couple of months we have put our emphasis on expanding the Roman history section, which already has over 70 pages. In August we began with the section "Decline of the Roman Republic". Crassus, Spartacus, Cicero and Pompey are the well known main characters of this troublesome time for the Republic. In the category Daily Life we added several pages about Roman Medicine like Medical Tools, Doctors, Surgery, Caesarean Section, Hospitals and Drugs.

3. New enhanced Sicily Map
=======================
Due to the overwhelming success of our Roman Empire Map we were encouraged to expand on this idea and are now beginning to produce highly detailed maps of each province, starting with Sicily. The Sicily Map page will give you the exact position where the province of Sicily was situated and a click on the map will get you to the actual map of Sicila. I hope you enjoy the detailed map. As a reminder our Empire map is still available for $29.95. The new province maps won't be available for sale in printed form for the time being. Demand for specific maps likely won't justify the expensive printing costs, but in the future we may package them as a complete set available on CD. Regardless, keep watching for more map additions.

4. Archeological News
===================
Highlights of Archaeological News include "Discovery Expose Origins Of Mithrae Cult", an interesting article about the ancient olympic games "Drugs, Cheating Were Part Of Original Olympics Too" and the discovery of a pre-Roman temple in Pompeii "Pompeii Find Shows Secrets Of The Samnites". All the latest news on archaeology that we find interesting for our visitors can be seen at our Archaeological Forum

5. Books and Book Reviews
========================
Our Roman book section is growing rapidly and hope it provides a quality resource for visitors. Both non-fiction and fictional novels are included for research and entertainment. Full reviews of titles are planned, but its a slow process with all the other projects we are working on. Thanks to one community member, though, we have added a review of Rubicon by Tom Holland. We welcome content additions from both our forum members and regular site visitors. Have you read a Roman book you'd like to give an opinion on... let us know, we'd love to hear from you.
