Re: I Don't Know About This One

I saw that article. It seems to me that they're not really asking the question of WHO invented the first alphabet, but WHERE & WHEN it was done. Most epigraphers agree that there was a proto alphabet developed by a semitic speaking people, possibly Canaanites, who were the innovators & that the Pho...

Squatters in Caral?

I just saw 2 articles about this in the news. Could this be true? If so, it's unbelievable. I couldn't find any other reports as yet. :shock: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2021/01/03/squatters-at-site-of-ancient-peruvian-city-threaten-archaeologists/amp/ https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/jan/...

Re: Food's Probably Cold By Now!

More Pompeii kitchens for Simple Simon:

Villa of the Mysteries, which had a courtyard kitchen. It even boasted 2 ovens. A small oven is attached to the hearth & the large oven is across the courtyard.

Re: Food's Probably Cold By Now!

A ccording to Mary Beard other taverns like this show no signs of fire, meaning the food was either sold cold or they contained ingredients not actual meals, though this discovery seems to mitigate against this. Of course no kitchens have been found at Pompeii and very few (if any) cooking implemen...

Re: Food's Probably Cold By Now!

Many of the cooking & eating utensils found in Pompeii were removed from the site where they were found in 1912. They were either packed up & stored or the better pieces were put on display at a central location away from the find site. https://historythings.com/pompeiis-kitchens-reveal-romans-cook...

At Pompeii, most houses had separate kitchens, most fairly small, but a few large; the Villa of the Mysteries covers a nine-by-twelv...

Re: Food's Probably Cold By Now!
