Discoveries and news in Rome

All the latest information about discoveries from the world of ancient Romans. I encourage you to let me know about any Roman news and to indicate any corrections or inaccuracies. I try to search for material everywhere, but it is natural that not everything will be noticed by me.

Roman city of Ucetia was discovered

For thousands of years, the Roman city of Ucetia was known only by name. Many scientists questioned its existence. However, archaeologists managed to find the remains of a center near modern Uzes (southern France), indicating that the Roman city really existed.

Modern technologies have made it possible to discover Carnutum

In 2011, on the outskirts of the Austrian capital, Vienna (Roman city Carnuntum), the remains of a Roman school of gladiators were found. Recently, scientists undertook a thorough study of the ground around the building with the help of radar. As it turned out, there were numerous bakeries, taverns and shops in the vicinity of the school.

Coloured Arch of Titus

The famous Arch of Titus still stands in the Roman Forum – a marble monument to the emperor’s glory and a symbol of victory in the Jewish war (66-73 CE). The building also reminds us of the plundering of the Second Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans – to this day, in the Jewish calendar, there is a day commemorating the anniversary of the destruction of the Temple. What is worth noting, however, scientists have reconstructed the hypothetical appearance of the building in ancient times.
