This building was constructed by the Romans around 200 in Trier. It protected the north entrance to the city. From the Middle Ages on it was called Porta Nigra because the sandstones it was built of darkened through the ages.
.
After 1028 the monk Simeon lived in the ruins as an eremit and after he died the gate was transformed into a church. In 1804 Napeleon ordered to rebuild it to its original form.

"By this sign conquer" I think there is such an interesting piece of history marked by this statue in York. It was in this city that the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great was declared Augustus by the British Legions in the fourth century AD. . #coup #Mugabe #romanhistory #york

Gladiatrix - According to several contemporary eye-witnesses, women also performed in the Roman arena. According to the biographer Suetonius, the emperor Domitian (reigned AD 81-96) made women fight by torchlight at night.

Today @mjpqr1983 gave a very interesting lecture about the Batavian revolt during Roman Empire in Veldzicht Museum in Noordwijk. He told the story using archaeologic and historical sources, explaining not only why and how the revolt took place but it's importance during the Dutch revolt in 1568, since the Batavian revolt was the only similar example in this region at that time. Rembrandt even made a painting of this (see second picture). Funny too how many things in our daily life wear the name of the Batavians, like a brand of bikes and a shopping centre in Lelystad. And the name of organic cosmetics Weleda has a link too with the Batavians. Some people asked MJ if and when he was going to publish his book and someone said I probably have roman roots. In fact, that is very probable 😂😂😂 #ancientrome #Noordwijk #archaeology #spqr #antiquity #batavian #romanhistory

Marble relief from Halicarnassus commemorating either the release from service or the discharge after a draw of two female gladiators, Amazonia and Achillea. They are armed, and advancing to attack, with swords and shields. They stand on a platform, and below on each side is the head of a spectator. Inscribed above and on the platform. They are shown with the same equipment as male gladiators, but without helmets.

According to several contemporary eye-witnesses, women also performed in the Roman arena. According to the biographer Suetonius, the emperor Domitian (reigned AD 81-96) made women fight by torchlight at night.

Living Off The Land
➖
Roman garrisons were fully self-sustained installations, containing their own barracks, hospitals and more, being models of cleanliness and hygene. This routine was born with the fully professional army created by the emperor Augustus. A part of this setup was of course the base's granaries, known to the Romans as Horrea. Although often referred to as facilities used purely to store the troops' supply of grain, the Horrea were in reality rather simply depots for all forms of fodder and other supplies.
As with anything else Roman the Horrea were built on a very practical and efficient level, allowing for the garrison to feed itself for a very long time. They were made from either stone or wood, but aside from that differed little. The floors of a Horrea were always elevated from the ground with low walls, stone supporting pillars or others of like, making their remains easy to identify. This kept the supplies safe from rodents and ensured good ventilation. Stone Horrea were usually reinforced with a backup wall, possibly to help divert rainwater away from the depot but also due to the naturally vast size of Horrea.
The importance of Horrea should not be understated, nor should their seemingly simple design be dismissed as insignificant. These installations gave the Romans the means to store food for long periods of time, keeping them dry and cool and ready to eat - an army, after all, fights on its stomach as is said. Their design was also yet another good example of Roman ingenuity and skills at engineering. Pictured above is an illustration of supplies being managed by a Horrea, with a pair of Auxiliary soldiers standing in attendance. Below that is an image of the remains of a Horrea, this coming from the fort at Housestead.
