I spent a few weeks earlier in the year fulfilling a long-held ambition: I traveled to ancient Thracia in search of the Battle of Adrianople - a pivotal clash that had far-reaching consequences for both the Eastern and Western Empires. Tens of thousands of legionaries fell to Fritigern's Gothic horde somewhere near the city that gave its name to the battle. Yet to this day, nobody has successfully located the site of the battle. I'd love to say I solved the riddle... but it confounded me too, though I had great fun exploring and putting shape to the landscape I've read so much about.
