  1. In all my years learning of the Roman Empire i came across a sub group of people i can only akin to flat earthers denying the existence of the Roman Empire forwarding no evidence. They sumise that the buiding where Russian built and the Empire was a fabrication of modern historians to hide the truth. I just wondered if anyone else had come across this and if anyone had a view point on it. Thanks in advance.
  2. What do you think about Caesar's storytelling ambitions? Did anyone read something made by Caesar? We all know several quotes made by himself, and we even learn it in schools. So, do you think his oral ambition helped him in ruling the empire? http://www.ancient-origins.net/history-famous-people/veni-vidi-scripsi-literary-conquests-gaius-julius-caesar-009060
  3. 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. Here's all my pics, historical facts and theories: http://www.gordondoherty.co.uk/writeblog/thebattleofadrianople
  4. He looks almost Byzantine or Greek, gazing doe-eyed over the viewer’s left shoulder, his mouth forming a slight pout, like a star-struck lover or perhaps a fan of the races witnessing his favorite charioteer losing control of his horses. In reality, he’s the “Bearded Man, 170-180 A.D.,” a Roman-Egyptian whose portrait adorned the sarcophagus sheltering his mummified remains. But the details of who he was and what he was thinking have been lost to time. But perhaps not for much longer. A microscopic sliver of painted wood could hold the keys to unraveling the first part of this centuries-old mystery. Figuring out what kind of pigment was used (whether it was a natural matter or a synthetic pigment mixed to custom specifications), and the exact materials used to create it, could help scientists unlock his identity.

  5. The carved jasper stone, found in Israel, was apparently commissioned by a wealthy man and passed down for generations.A unique gemstone found in Israel that may have adorned a ring has shed light on a little known art in ancient Rome: fine carving. On the floor of a room dating to the early Byzantium period, around 4th century CE, archaeologists spotted a red gemstone beautifully engraved with the figure of a naked running man holding a laurel wreath in one hand. Or maybe he's holding a wreath of olive branches. It's hard to tell. In any case, in the other hand the bare gentleman holds what is clearly a date palm branch. More at Haaretz
  6. Archeologists have found a Roman coin during excavations in the historic center of the northern city of Veliky Novgorod, an archeologist said on Monday. The copper coin, which belongs to a type known as "follis," is believed to date to the early 4th century A. D., Oleg Oleinikov of the Moscow-based Archeology Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, told Interfax. Read more here.
