    Latin: Ovid's Tour of Rome - Tristia 3.1

    And I too thank you, Italian Archaeologist in Scotland, for sharing this. Are there any known likenesses of Ovid?
  2. Oh my goodness. Incredible. Thanks for sharing.
  3. I don't mean to make a habit of posting these, but lately I've come across a couple of good ones. Here's the latest.

    Burials Found in Vatican City

    Thanks for sharing this.
  7. Well that was an enjoyable and informative talk with Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow. Thank you for posting. I would like to hear more from that site. but I didn't catch the name of the young woman presenting the series of talks. The next was to be on leprosy.
  8. A very interesting read, enjoyed the video also.

    Pink Beach in Italy: No Visitors Allowed

    Never knew this existed.
  10. It was created by a true artist. I would love to see it in person. By the way, I'm always tempted to scroll down and about on the pages to read about other exciting finds. The video of the Acropolos Museum was amazing. That would be wonderful to see as well. Have you ever been?

    Touching Roman Grave

    Yes, very touching.
  12. Photos were stunning, esp. the one with the arched entrance to the arena. You can almost sense what it was like to emerge from that and be inside.
  13. Oh, thank you. The answer must have been in the first link which I could not open without disabling Adblock. I only read the info at the second link.
  14. Has the inscription been translated?

    Preserved Ancient Child

    Thanks for sharing this.
  17. I can't wait to see what discoveries are made. Perhaps areas where looters haven't been. Wouldn't that be thrilling to see new statuary, etc? I know many people find it all so touristy and such, but I've always been fascinated by Pompeii.
  18. I was going to post this in a separate post, but it's more appropriate here. : )
  19. An interesting read. Thank you. Like the guy in the video, I also always wondered just how the lamps worked.
  20. Have you personally ever been to the Vindolanda site? Are tourists allowed there?
  21. Great! Something to watch this evening besides channel surfing. Will watch later.

    Coliseums Outside of Italy To Visit

    This is the first I've read about these other coliseums. The one in France is amazing. I hope you get to travel to Croatia, hope we all get to travel - anywhere - in the not too distance future.
  23. Yes, it is interesting. Thank you for posting.
