At the launch of her book Sacred Britania - religion in Britain during the Roman empire author Miranda Aldhouse-Green asserted that there was still no archaeological evidence for the existence of Druids - no mass grave on Anglesey, no golden sickles

Weren't they always a fringe movement?
On the edge of the establishment.

It takes a lot of time and money to build with stone.
Finding a clearing in the forest to build a bonfire not so much.

It is a good point, what would you expect to find. The prof particularly referred to the massacre on Anglesey by Suetonius Paulinus, but has evidence of roman massacres elsewhere ever been found?

The Romans were noted for leaving the bodies of crucified criminals hanging on the crosses until they rotted off. They were not squeamish about that sort of thing.

< Mod hat on>

I cleaned up some of the duplicate and triplicate posts. I know we had some problems earlier in the day.


< Mod hat off >


While Kubrick made the episode famous in his historically horrendous version of Spartacus only one ancient source tells that story. Appian, living in the second century AD, recounts the tale but Plutarch fails to mention it. Livy writing in the first century BC and AD does not mention it although in fairness we have only summaries of the missing books of which the Third Servile War is one. It does seem like the kind of highlight that Livy would normally have noted but we simply do not know if he did or didn't tell the tale.

It is quite possible that Sallustius Crispus' History did tell the tale as we know he wrote of the Jugurthine War 112-106 BC and the Cataline Conspiracy 63 BC but anything between those two points seems to have been lost to history.

C'est la vie.

Yes. The Via Appia, today.

It seems that after they built the roads the Romans decided to give travelers some shade. If it happened at all I'm sure the path of least resistance would have been to hang them on the trees.

Of course, there are a few plot holes in the crucifixion tale which don't match up to history as we know it, too.
