Just a short one today, as I’m outward bound once again to see various folks (including several Mystai of the Antinoan Mysteries) in Seattle and its suburbs tonight and tomorrow morning.
This interesting National Geographic article on Roman Frontiers, not surprisingly, has quite a bit on Hadrian’s Wall in it. While I’m not 100% happy with the article (given its somewhat poorly contextualized account of the Bar-Kochba Rebellion and Hadrian’s reaction to it), it’s still not bad for a mainstream publication that is read by many people who likely don’t know a thin about this subject. And, be sure and check out these lovely photos that accompany it! I have not seen some of those objects previously, so there’s much upon which to feast the eyes!
