I love the way new archaeological finds are always coming to light. Carnuntum, a former Roman settlement just outside Vienna has placed itself firmly on the map with this discovery.
In other news, a reader of mine, Steven Kelly, is heading soon to the Roman ruins at Volubilis. I had to look up the name, and when I did, I felt jealous. It’s an amazing site in Morocco, and apparently one of the best in North Africa. Check it out on Google, or here. Please take lots of photos, Steven, and share when you get back!
A 3,000 year old body found in an Irish bog is that of a sacrificed man, possibly a king. Nasty way to go.
