Ancient history cornucopia

Despite my great respect for the weekly ancient history feature Explorator, I often don't have time to read it very thoroughly. So every once in a while it really hits me how good a given week's issue is.

This week, for instance has links (more than I show here) on:

The discovery in Rome of regalia apparently associated with Maxentius, the Roman emperor defeated by Constantine at the Milvian Bridge.

The discovery in Rome of the sarcophagus of St. Paul
.

A story on a really terrifying tsunami in the prehistoric Mediterranean.

And the possible discovery of another runic stone at the famous Danish site of Jelling.

And plenty more!

It's a golden age of discovery, I tell you.

  1. I'm really intrigued by the description of Maxentius' relics, though I want to know what else, besides the date, suggests his identity to them. I can't wait until they go on display, that's for sure!
