Roman Forum Photo Album

The following link will take you to a photo album of the Roman Forum.

The Roman Forum

I've been to the Forum twice -- 25 years apart. It was interesting to note the changes over that time, mainly that of new excavations. Several structures that were covered or under repair in 1985 are now seen in all their glory.

In 1985 you could wander through the ruins at will: now the House of the Vestals and the Basilica Julia are blocked off.

It's funny to contemplate changes during my little span of time when the structures have stood there 80 times as long.

Hi Mike recently came across your blog, enjoyed the earlier Thermopylae and Sparta content. You may be interested in Marathon2500 a series of online lectures commemorating the 2500th anniversary of the battle of Marathon. We have a facebook page here:!/M2500

Check it out, and if you have any relevant comment feel free to link to it.
