Sorry, Faith. It's weird, but I've realised that if it doesn't have the http:// bit in as well, the address doesn't work.

I've corrected it above, but here it is again:

Win a Roman coin worth over £200 / £320 !

Hi all

Sorry I've not been around much.

If you'd like to see if you can win a Mark Antony & Octavian quinarius, dated to 40/39 BC, have a look at my thread in the travel section, about mad Roman authors walking in Italy!

Thanks

Mad Roman authors walk again for charity, this time in Italy

This year, I'm repeating the madness of my walk on Hadrian's Wall, in Roman kit, for charity - except I'm doing it in Italy, over 130 miles this time... Just over two weeks until we start marching in Italy, and I am suffering a recurrence of a large blister on one heel. Cursed Roman boots. Aesculapi...

HHhH by Laurent Binet

The book HHhH first came to my notice when I saw the highly distinctive cover - it's a great example of eye-catching art: the threatening German uniform, and the face that has been replaced by the 4Hs. Always behind on buying the books I want to read, I only got around to buying it a couple of weeks...

Rome's Greatest Defeat (NF) by Adrian Murdoch

If you're interested in the Varian/Kalkriese disaster in AD/CE 9, you need to buy this fine textbook by Adrian Murdoch.
