CINEMA-TV - History runs through ancient channels | Roman History | Scoop.it

Koç University’s Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations is home to a new exhibition that delves into some of the greatest monuments in the history of Constantinople, Istanbul’s predecessor.


A new exhibition shines further light on the history of Istanbul, unraveling one of the biggest achievements in the history of Constantinople, the late Roman and Byzantine city.

 

The long title of the exhibition is “Waters for a Capital: Archaeological and Scientific Research into the Water Supply of Byzantine Constantinople / Istanbul,” and it uncovers some of the greatest monuments, sharing the history of the Hagia Sophia, the relics of the Hippodrome, and the walls overlooking the Bosphorus.

The Roman Empire's OTHER Hadrian's Wall? Declassified spy photos reveal ...
Daily Mail
Declassified spy photography has uncovered a long-lost Eastern frontier built by the Romans dating from the second century AD.
Jordin Altmann's insight:

Research by archaeologists at the Universities of Glasgow and Exeter has identified a long wall that ran 60 kilometres from the Danube to the Black Sea over what is modern Romania. It is considered the most easterly example of a man-made frontier barrier system in the Roman Empire. This is very interesting and most fun to hear and read about!

Jordin Altmann's insight:

I believe this article or scoop is very true! In my History class we have gone over times when woman had rights of property, divorice, and more.
