In the background the ancient senates building with the Romans senates met. That building is 1700 year old. In the middle of modern Rome. So typical of Rome, where the ancient with the modern is intertwined. #rome #ancientrome #modern #history #ancienthistory #romanhistory #beautiful #guide #guideofrome #guidetour #officialguide # @oamingrome.org

'The Artemision Bronze': Bronze statue of Zeus or Poseidon recovered from a sank Roman ship in the Cape Artemision, in nothern Euboea, Greece. From the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, Greece. It was discovered in 1926 and excavated in 1928. The figure is over lifesize at 209 cm. It is considered that the depicted god it would either hold a thunderbolt, if Zeus, or a trident if Poseidon. There is a debate about the right identity of the god. The statue is a fifth century sculpture but the fact that it was found in a Roman ship maybe reveals that the Romans tried to transfer it probably to Rome. Which god do you think is it?

Yamaç Evler Helen ve Roma çağlarından kalma Efes kentinin merkezinde bulunuyor ve günümüzde burası, Kuretler Caddesi şeklinde adlandırılıyor. Cadde, iki yüksekçe tepenin arasına yerleşmiş şekilde. Roma döneminin varlıklı kesimlerinin yaşadığı bu evler günümüzün merkezi ısıtma sistemine benzeyen bir sistemle zeminden ısıtmayla ısıtılmış. Duvarlar ve yerler göz alıcı mozaik ve fresklerle donatılmıştır. #ephesus #terracehouses #yamaçevler #efes #öncetürkiyeyikeşfet #efesos #fresk #mozaik #house #museum #museumpass #friendsofmuseum #müzedostu #temple #ancientcity #pompei #ancient #archeologicalsite #archeology #inscriptions #celsus #turkey_home #picoftheday #photooftheday #photo #ancienthistory #history #love #gezelimgörelim

Ammianus Marcellinus ➖ The Late Imperial soldier-historian Ammianus Marcellinus is one of the most important authorities on Roman history, describing in detail the second half of the 4th century AD in his work "Res Gestae", for which he was a contemporary. Born at Antioch in Syria, Ammianus was of Greek background (He calls himself a "soldier and a Greek", but also identified as a Roman), but wrote his histories in Latin in which he was also fluent. He set himself to continue the works of the Roman historian Tacitus from the Principate, covering Rome's history from the reign of Nerva in 96 AD to the death of Valens in 378 AD. Sadly, only his books covering the period from 353-378 AD have survived. As mentioned above Ammianus was a soldier himself, serving for much of his career in the Roman East in the reign of emperor Constantius II where during the 4th century AD the Romans were often fighting the neighboring Sassanid Persian Empire. He also served in Gaul, and then again in the East under Julian and his successor Jovian at least. Ammianus was also a pagan. As he was an experienced soldier himself, Ammianus is a valuable authority on Late Roman military history, and he covers plenty of other events as well with his usual clear style. However like any ancient historian Ammianus does have his vices. He was strongly biased against the emperor Constantius II against whom Julian rebelled, whom Ammianus admired, and pictured the emperor as always losing in foreign wars and winning just civil conflicts while doing nothing worthwhile. In fact, Constantius was held in high esteem by contemporaries and, as Ammianus himself admits, by the soldiers he commanded, winning many battles and campaigns against not only his Roman but his foreign enemies. Another notable issue with Ammianus is that, by his own admission, he only chose to mention events he considered important, and as a result many battles or other events go unmentioned in his narrative. --- #Rome #Roma #RomanArmy #RomanLegion #RomanEmpire #SPQR #LateRomanArmy #LateRomanEmpire #History #RomanHistory #AncientHistory #MilitaryHistory #AmmianusMarcellinus #Historian #Soldier

The best-known vision of the Norse afterlife is that of Valhalla, the hall of the heroes where warriors chosen by the Valkyries feast with the god Odin, tell stories from their lives, and fight each other in preparation for the final battle of Ragnarök, the end of the world and death of the gods. This image is as deeply associated with Norse beliefs from around the Viking Age (c. 790-1100 CE) as that of the Viking funeral in which a boat is decked out as a pyre with the corpse surrounded by treasures, and either buried or set on fire. These descriptions come from works preserving Norse mythology and other types of literature (as well as physical evidence) which show that burying boats and ships as biers, or setting them on fire as pyres, did happen and such images have been popularized in media (most recently through TV series such as Vikings and The Last Kingdom). There were, however, a number of possible destinations for Scandinavian souls in the afterlife and boats, because they were so costly, seem to have been rarely buried or burned. A Viking – or any Scandinavian warrior – may have expected to wake up in Valhalla after death but the farmer or weaver who had never picked up a sword or axe would not. Even so, what precisely they would have expected is unclear. Norse religion was fully integrated into the lives of the people and there was no one set of dogmatic beliefs on how the gods operated, how they were to be worshiped, or where the soul went to after death. Religious rituals were practiced privately in homes or at outdoor festivals and the Norse had no written scripture. It is difficult, therefore, to reconstruct Norse beliefs in the present day as they would have been enacted before and during the Viking Age. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • (Article by Joshua J.
