The landing site of Julius Caesar’s British Invasion has a new contender at Pegwell Bay based on carbon dating of weapons, similarities to the fortress of Alésia and the size of the bay compared to Caesar’s fleet size. The research was carried out by researchers from the University of Leicester. Now we just have to wait for the tourists and family photos that will follow this, if true.

Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities declared that three ships have been discovered near Abu Qir Bay from the time of Augustus along with gold coins depicting him, a crystal head believed to be Marc Antony. Another ship, a Byzantine vessel, was discovered off the southeastern coast of Sicily. The discovery was made by Professor Massimo Capulli, University of Udine, and Sebastiano Tusa, Soprintendenza del mare della Regione Sicilia, with support from the Institute of Nautical Archaeology of the Texas A&M University College Station.

A Roman temple was discovered in rural Hampshire, England with several tiles stamped with the mark of Emperor Nero. The idea that Nero was the temple’s sponsor is being kicked around but hasn’t been nailed down as a definite. Professor Mike Fulford, University of Reading, is leading the dig. The temple that was discovered is the third in a series of temples built together for the area.

In Trabzon, a city along the southern shores of the Black Sea, the famous Sümela Monastery was being renovated when workers discovered a hidden passageway. Shrouded from view, a chapel was found, never being known about by any of the tourists or workers there. Frescoes were discovered along its walls depicting, “heaven and hell, and death and life.” The chapel will be included in the restoration works and available to the viewing public upon completion of the renovations.

In the Turkish province of Çorum, a rural mountainous province near the Black Sea, a farmer found a statuette of Hermes. After giving it to the government and their verification of its authenticity they awarded him with a payment. This is apparently a system of countering the smuggling of artifacts, which Turkey has been dealing with constantly. The statuette currently sits in the Çorum Archeological Museum.

In the Denizli province of Turkey, sewer workers found something a little more pleasant when they were working on the pipes. They discovered five large marble pieces that were dated back to the Roman period around 1,500 years ago.

  3. I believe everything posted was actually very logical.
    However, consider this, what if you were to write a killer headline?
    I ain’t suggesting your content is not good, but suppose you added a title that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Roman Findings: Julian Landing, Augustan-era Ships, Sümela Chapel – Tome of Trovius is a little boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news
    headlines to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video
    or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    person’s attention? I mean Roman Findings: Julian Landing,
    Augustan-era Ships, Sümela Chapel – Tome of Trovius is kinda boring.
