  1. I can't imagine what that must have been like for the people. Am I reading correctly, that this was one reason it is referred to as the Dark Ages? because it WAS dark? I've never read about this before. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Brought to life using colorization and AI Technology.

    More historical statues brought to life

    This is what I was looking for. Dark brown, not grey eyes. Thank you.

    Yes, I would like to ask the artist how he/she arrived at eye color. And I imagine there was much more makeup worn by women than shown in the colorization. Which makes me wonder, in ancient writings are details like this about people ever written about by their peers? Not that I have read as much as others here probably have. Seems to me I do remember reading that Julius Caesar had "light gray" eyes.

    Relax with the Roman Baths

    Yes I bet it was.
  8. It all so fascinating to me. Wish I could see how the city really looked at that time. I have trouble visualizing. Actually, I have been to Egypt and in King Tut's tomb. I was surprised at how small it was.
  9. I have never heard or read about this before. Thank you. I bookmarked the Flyoverzone web site for later.
  10. ".....and what I'm standing on here is a 1970 sewer pipe that isn't very interesting...." But - 2,000 years from now someone may dig up a 1970 sewer pipe up and marvel and put it on display. I always think of this when broken pottery is found. The Roman person who broke it and tossed it thought "it isn't very interesting.." ha

    Late Roman villa of Caddeddi

  12. Yeesh. Did you happen to view another video there titled "A Day in Pompeii -Full Length Animation"? Around 1pm. I would have gotten the hell out of there!
  13. I would like to know, however, how they came up with that date. I was wondering the same thing. It's hard to fathom.
  14. I've always been fascinated by the object. Imagine the anguish when news of the ship wreck reached whomever was responsible for its creation - looted or other wise. Did I miss what type of material it is made of? Why would only 1/3 of it survive? Corrosion causing it to fragment and those fragments being dispersed by the water current, surely there has been efforts to scour the site for them. Ah, all too mind blowing to think about.
  15. Very informative. Thank you.

    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?
  17. Oh my goodness. Incredible. Thanks for sharing.
  18. 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.

  20. I learn something new every day on this forum. Thank you.

    Burials Found in Vatican City

    Thanks for sharing this.
  22. 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.
  23. A very interesting read, enjoyed the video also.
