Some "fun" facts about the Ancient Egyptians and the way they live.  These were interesting, particularly the thoery that King Tut may have suffered a traumatic injury at the hands of a hippopatamus.  There is always more history to be discovered and it's great to learn more of the past world.

Le Marche | Before The Romans

Le Marche | Before The Romans | History | Scoop.it

There's a legend that tells of the time - before 300 BC - when the Picentini people, nomadic shepherds, left the country of the Sabines and travelled north to settle in the country they would call Picenum. The legend has it that they were guided by a woodpecker to the wedge of land between two rivers on which they founded a city - today known as Ascoli Piceno. The Latin word "woodpecker" was "picus" -- and thus the name.
Who were these people?
Before the Romanisation of the peninsular, Italy was populated by many different tribes -- those most remembered include the Etruscans (in modern-day Tuscany), the war-like Sabines, a variety of Greek colonies, and the Picenes.
Perhaps the most obvious reminder of the Picenes today is the second city of the province of Le Marche, which is called Ascoli Piceno. In Ascoli Piceno, in addition to some lovely piazzas, lots of travertine marble, a big duomo and plenty of anisette liqueur, there is a Museo Archeologico with a small but well-curated display of finds from graves and diggings from Picene times.
My 'Rough Guide To Italy' guide book summarises the Piceni tribes:
...the relics of their civilisation suggest that they were a pretty emotional and impetuous lot: writing curses on missiles, gauging grief by measuring the volume of tears, a losing a critical battle against the Romans when they interpreted an earthquake as a sign of divine wrath and abandoned the fight...

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.
