The forgotten war between the Romans and the Celtiberians may not ring any bells with most people today, but many historians rank it as one of the most significant wars of the Roman era. RECOtechnology commemorated the 2150th anniversary of the Siege of Numantia by releasing a videogame that narrates the ancient conflict between Rome and the city of Numantia, in a war that lasted for more than two decades.

Worship of the ancient pagan gods is on the rise in many parts of Europe. Norse Neopaganism is becoming popular in Scandinavia, Germany, and elsewhere. Hellenic Neopaganism or simply “Hellenism,” is gaining popularity in Greece and the area around the Aegean. Elsewhere in the world, particularly in Italy, but also in Eastern Europe and the United States, the ancient Roman state religion is making a comeback. As of 2017, these modern Romans even have an active, public temple to Jupiter, the Iuppiter-Perunus temple.

Although the word ‘Mandala’ simply means “circle” or “discoid object” in Sanskrit, the significance is far more complex. Traditionally, mandalas represented the intricacy of the universe and served as a guide for reflective practices such as meditation.
Mandalas have been present in Tantric Hinduism, Tantric Buddhism, and Jainism for hundreds of years. But it may be that other cultures have been creating similar images for even longer while using other names and perhaps including some variation to meaning.

Ancient Rome borrowed from ancient Greece for architecture, among other things, but then innovated and invented its own architectural features and building types. Roman architecture made a statement with its imposing public edifices: We are a world power, and we have the wealth, technology and manpower to dominate in culture as well as politics.

The history of the Native American Comanche tribe includes their move from ancestral homelands in Wyoming to more southerly parts and conquering new lands. They were then in turn conquered, after many struggles, by invading people of European descent.
The Comanche in the 1600s moved from the mountains in the North onto the Southern Plains. They came to dominate their new territory. They adopted the horse into their culture in the 17th century and quickly conquered vast tracts through subjugation and warfare.

The ancient Romans had an insatiable desire to conquer territory and they ranged far outside Italy to do so. An excavation this summer revealed that one place where the Romans had an outpost was in Gernsheim, Germany, 943 km (546) miles north of Rome. They also discovered that after the Roman soldiers left the military fort, another group of people moved in and built a village on top of it.

Last week a rare Roman bronze horse’s head made international headlines because it gained a German farmer a pretty penny. Now the sculpture fragment is back in the limelight because archaeologists say it provides evidence that relations between Germanic tribes and Romans were not always as tense as some historians suggest. Actually, it seems life was mostly comfortable almost 2,000 years ago when the two cultures lived alongside one another at Waldgirmes.
