To see what the cities and were rivers were at during this time period is amazing because now a days all this is way different and most places are either gone or restored. Some cities may excist but are way to old and in bad shapes that you can not imagen what it was like.

It's sad to know how gladiators are not given second chance. 

elizama ramirez's curator insight, February 25, 2014 5:49 PM

Romans treated the barbarians badly and did not like them. In fact they are called barbarians because that is what the Romans named them. Becoming a gladiator was not a choice. The Romans would capture these people and then sale them, once bought the owner decided what they wanted them for and some would send them in trauning and to fight. You lose, you die!

What is in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead?

What is in the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead? | Ancient History- New Horizons | Scoop.it

‘The Book of the Dead’—it sounds so ominous and creepy.  One may picture a priestess chanting spells as a dusty mummy jerks up in his sarcophagus, but what is really in these mysterious sacred texts?

 

Well, it was kind of like a first aid kit, travel insurance and a bible all rolled into one totable papyrus."
