Re: End of the Year; Call for Officers

Salvete omnes,

I hereby announce my candidacy for Curator. I have had experience maintaining the forum back when we were still phpBB2 and am willing to serve the Societas once more.

Re: I am currently reading...

Salvete omnes, Inspired by Pulla's experiences with Roman meals, I've gotten "Rond de tafel der Romeinen" by P.C.P. Faas from the library. Awesome reading material so far and I recommend it to everyone wanting to know more about Roman eating habits. It's been translated into English as ...

Re: Roman Cena, 17 Ian 09 (MD, US)

Salve Pulla! Your post is moutwatering... I might just have to go, buy that book and start cooking. I'd cook Chicken a la Elagaballus for the name alone :wink:. The only time I got to experience Roman cooking was at the Gallo-Roman festival at Vioviracum (Wervik). Hotdogs with honey-sauce! It sou...

Salve Pulla,

Did you go in the end? Or were you unable to contact anyone?

Re: Fasti

Interesting ancient inventions

Salvete Sodales! Though we already have a thread dedicated to 'normal' archeological news , I felt the need to create a thread dedicated to all the truly bizarre and strange archeological finds. I'll get things started: The Antikythera mechanism The Antikythera mechanism, is an ancient mech...

Firefighting Methods

Salvete Omnes, Lately I've been reading about the Vigiles (mostly on the internet, I haven't been able to go to the library yet) and there was one thing in the wikipedia article that intrigued me. There is even evidence that chemical firefighting methods were used by throwing a vinegar based su...

Re: Holiday Festivities

Salvete Omnes, Seems like a lot of us here like Asian cuisine. It used to be somewhat of a tradition that on Christmas Day we would order take-away Chinese. Great food and no kitchen-stress whatsoever! This year I'll be celebrating Christmas Eve with friends and Christmas Day will be spent with ou...

I was wondering why they were selling it so cheaply. Then I read the first post again and saw it was 44 436$ and not 44,43$.

I guess I wont be buying it then. :D

Re: pointless tangent

Salve Iohane, A nice bit of deducting you did there. I think I may be able to help you with "geschiedenis" as wel. I think the roots of the word lie with the verb "geschieden" or "to happen, to occur". Perhaps there is an old English word that is somewhat similar to ...

Salvete Paule et Iohane, I don't have a lot of experience with Romen themed board games. Though now I do wonder why there never was a Roman Risk edition. As far as games go, I'm only familiar with Caesar III and I loved that game. I haven't gotten round to playing Caesar IV yet, but I'm afra...

Re: CONVOCATIO De Statu Proiectorum Aliarumque Rerum 8/2/276

Salvete Iohane et Paule, V. Status Societatis. And, of course, I wanted to sound out all the attendees of the Comitia on how they think things are going in the neo-Roman world, and the SVR in particular. I apologize if I come across rather bluntly, however, in my opinion, things are goi...
