Hiatus …

After a long period where life just seemed to take over, I am ready to overcome months of inertia.

Spurred on by the coincidence of reading Mary Beard’s SPQR: a History of Ancient Rome, watching her BBC Two series Ultimate Rome: Empire without limits, and a visit to the British Museum, a vignette seemed to be the ideal project to get my juices flowing again. An incentive from Warlord Games prompted me to buy their Roman travelling coach, or carpentum.

I would unreservedly recommend Beard’s book. It’s beautifully written and very accessible without dumbing down.

In the blister: Warlord Games’ Roman traveling coach … my next vignette.
