Books and Reference Materials / Rome's Colosseum a Condominium in Medieval Times
« Last post by Caesar on July 04, 2014, 11:23:21 AM »
Forget gory shows and gladiatorial combat. In the late Middle Ages, Rome's Colosseum was a huge condominium, says the latest archaeological investigation into Rome's most iconic monument.

Archaeologists from Roma Tre University and students from the American University of Rome unearthed evidence showing that ordinary Romans lived within the Colosseum from the ninth century until at least 1349, when the building was seriously damaged by an earthquake.

During a three-week excavation beneath some of the arched entrances that lead into the arena, the archaeologists discovered terracotta sewage pipes, potsherds and the foundations of a 12th-century wall that once enclosed one of the properties.

Building talk / Castra plans?
« Last post by Decimvs on June 30, 2014, 12:33:04 PM »
Here, attached, are some plans and art of what Marcvs thinks the castra should look like... Your thoughts and comments...

The first art comments form Marcvs: Here is a view of a reconstruction of the field fortifications at Alesia in France. The walls are done in a manner similar to what is proposed for our Castra, with wattling or a basket weave using log poles with a smaller diameter posts in between, and planks or saplings woven I around them.

Second art: This is what the front gate end of the Castra may look like when complete.

In all seriousness...  I will be at Ft. Dix again this summer in the second half of July.  Do we know the work weekend yet?  I can try and plan my travel around that so I can help lend a hand.
