Ilse's weblog of random thoughts



Dig in!

The last weeks, numerous new ruins and artefacts have been discovered. In Rome, they recently found Nero’s rotating banqueting hall. Close by, at ancient Rome’s port of Ostia, a British research team excavated a mini-colosseum. Meanwhile, other British archaeologists unearthed a new stone circle close to Stonehenge, which they named ‘Bluehenge’, after the hue of the 25 stones which form the circle.

Closer at home, excavations at a  new building site in Antwerp revealed several Gallo-Roman graves.

Despite the world wide crisis, I’m glad to see there is still plenty of work these days for archaeologists all over the world!
