that's a roman emperor you fag, have some respect.
its for representation only bozo
That's an Emperor, and actually the ONLY reason why the West was Christian for the last 1700 years
>the ONLY reason
>he believes that Constantine kickstarted christianity on the empire instead of just following where the wind was flowing like a good politician
You know what? I think israeliteOnaStick is le good
That ''religion'' would just have died off like many other did before in the empire (serapism, egyptian stuffs, Zoroastrisms, Mitra, etc)
One could say that it came at the exact time and exact place in history as if some all knowing force that sees the end from the beginning planned it all. Really stirs the unguided random chemicals.
Lol, stop, you're making the israelites from /misc/ afraid.
israelites you say?
Hit a tree with a heavy wood shield and sword 8 hours a day then march 20km with 30kg equipment
drink you weight in wine too, but mix it with water of course, we are not barbarians here.
which dilution rate did rOman soldiers use tho
Eat shit bread and walk 20 miles a day with all your possessions on your back. In other words become homeless
Chop wood and dig holes 8 hours / week, and walk 40 miles a week with a 45 lb pack
aka wildland firefighter training
Start small & progressively overload, 1 hour / week hole digging & wood chopping, 5 miles a week w/ a 5 lb pack
What routines to be able to become Caesar? If you are going to aim, aim high.
It's well know what they ate
damn, medieval paintings look like kids scribbling compared to this
Of course they did, Rome had a high literacy and education level for the time but it fell off after the church consolidated power. Say like 10% or more of Romans could read, well, you can preserve all sorts of techniques in schools and books with even that level of education resources and skilled enough artisans. Fine arts fell out until the high middle ages and the Renaissance, when grammar schools and more advanced institutes started cropping up again due to the patronage systems.
What rustles my jimmies is the incredible detail in deep prehistoric times. Pic related is from Mycenaean Greece, but even as far back as the mesolithic or older in some of their spear throwers and other artifacts there was such skill, detail and craftsmanship in various times and places in Europe. We have no record of schools teaching them stuff like pic rel but it would have had to have been a tradition to have reached such a level. The Minoans appeared to have learned stone masonry from Egyptians but there is nothing like this found in any particular of prehistoric Africa.
Yep mosaics were very advanced for the times
Start by being shorter than 5'5. Gauls, Celts, and Germans were much taller than Romanlets
Here you can even see a ''pitta'', literally a proto-pizza
this was cool, was this when they uncovered the fast food stalls in pompeii? I thought that was pretty incredible, to get the live street advertising from so long ago
>Pitta and modern homemade pizza
No, they weren't ''industrial'', this was an alien concept. They were made in the ''tabernae'' and in the private houses, there weren't any food chains or even something remotely similar
Ancient rome had "fast food" more like street food but it was stuff like roasted snails.
There was street food though, that's what I mean with 'fast food'
Yep that's true.
There were also special palces for fast breakfast like nowadays.
I guess pitta was more a lunch thing and for peasants, but yes it's amazing that these were basically ancient advertisings
What is that plant in the top right?
Olives, leccina variety
these? Are they bound together in a particular way or something?
It's the ancient cultivar (the one in the roman fresco). The modern ones you posted isthe one i grow in my oliveyards and was modified by arabs and later Benedectine monks in the Middle Ages to have less fruicts but with more unsaturated fats/oil contents.
Some botanics are trying to recreate it for academic research.
Invent time machine x1

Walk 10 roman miles every day(that's 23km)
That's 7ish hours of walking
The average late empire army ''rancio'' (ration) was rice + pork and bread + fruits and salted meat
Burnet things found in Pompeii
Return henceforth to Redditus
Dumb, it's just standard italian language since the pics is from the National Naples Museum, lol
So, basicaly, Med diet
Yeah the original one, not the ''one'' promoted by
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Marching with 45lbs and with 2,85mph for a mile per day.
I like this, any more like that?
>Roman legions and Greek athletes were taller than the vast majority of SwoleShack
No such thing.
Legionaire is for the French.
Romans had legionaries.
Just build roads, forts and bridges made of stone and wood endlessly while eating gruel and bread and occasionally soups made from beef or wild game. Suppress farmer and pleb revolts because they are poor and overtaxed and slaves have taken all the jobs, except mines where they can be worked until they die by the ripe age of 30. Then die in a ditch somewhere after being pointlessly thrown up against some force of gigantic rural Goths who have done nothing but hunt auroch and train for war their entire life.
Hope it was worth it.
