The Parthenon was a building that was built and was burned by the Persians at around 480 BCE. The foundation was made of limestone and marble. It is a beautiful piece of architecture, and it is great because it is still standing.

the scientists bring about new information all the time with their new discoveies creating more questions .. but overall we learn more when new sites are excavated like these ancient aqueducts in rome ..

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, March 4, 1:50 PM

The mission was for Vicovaro and his team to go down access wells and clamber through crevices to access.These eleven aqueducts were built in ancient Rome, which still run for hundreds of kilometers underground. It is interesting how modernized this system was. You wonder how long this took to build the aqueducts to build, considering the limited technology they had. This provides evidence of their engineering skills.

This scoop is about a Roman mosaic of how women are the reasons for wars and other evils. Only the rich were able to have mosaics in their homes so, the controversial mosiacs were attributed to the ideas of those who had the money and social class to have them built in their homes.

Cynia Sapp's curator insight, February 18, 11:14 PM

This Roman mosaic depicts feminine stereotypes. It is interesting how women are shown in most of these depicted. Women were supposedly the cause of wars and bad things that happened in a society.
