Salve amice, As far as I can tell with the tech it's pretty much on par with us today. Telephones are longdictors, TV is longvision. The magnet-trains are my personal favourites, although there's no sign of lasers or flying cars yet. I meant the entire American continent except for some part o...

I'll tip my hat to Sohpia McDougall's 'Romanitas'. Not entirely Sci Fi (then again I wouldn't really know. I never got into the Sci Fi genre. Fantasy though...), she's just released the first of a planned trilogy in which the Roman Empire has survived through to the modern day. Don't worry, they've ...

Salve amici, There would really be no problem in paying homage to other Gods alongside the Household dieties as far as I can tell. I'll let Horatius answer in full, he certainly has a far more expansive knowledge in this area then I, but as far as I myself can tell, there would be no problem comb...

Salve amice, Just happy to get the ball rolling. It's not perfect and looking at it now I can see a plethora of spelling and grammar mistakes :) (aide?) I like playing with these historical facts, it always ends in something funny :) Anyone else care to try their hand at it? Vale. A. Fla...

EXTRA EXTRA!!!

( In the spirit of Aldus' story-line, I present my own peice :) ) VENI, VIDI, VICI? ROMANS HERE TO STAY? San Francisco residents were given a rather rude shock today after awaking to discover that Mt Davidson Park has been occupied by a group of Roman Legionaires. Locals claim that the camp si...

Bacchanalia/Augustales

Salve, Firstly the two topics are unrelated. I just figured I'd save time and cram them into one post :) I thought I'd bring this to a wider forum, as I've asked af few people in private but not many people seem to know much on the topics. I was wondering if anyone could recommend any texts th...

Help with joining

Ave amice, Pardon me for bothering but I just wanted some help joining SVR. I applied several weeks ago and never got confirmation. I've been told that at least one of the Censors may be occupied elsewhere, so other then that I was just wondering if there's any reason my registration might not ha...

Salve amici, Adkins and Adkins have a wonderful book, "The Dictionary of Roman Religion", while it doesn't work on the same introductory basis that Sheid does it has information on supposedly every Roman god, holiday, religious impliment. Basically if you can think about it it should be in th...
