I’m always a bit fascinated by Roman and Greek antiquities. I’ve heard that the British Museum has entire sections on things that happened after 400 AD, but I can’t drag myself away from the old stuff! Here are a few ruins I’ve seen on my travels.
City gate into Nimes, France. Built during the reign of Caesar Augustus (27 BCE – 14 ACE). P.S. do NOT drive in Nimes!
The Roman amphitheater in Arles, France. It was during the middle of a project to clean the ancient stone using tiny bits of frozen CO2 as a blasting agent. Shiny!
What do you think?
