Just some fun things for the eyes and ears of classicists over the weekend, before some analysis on the formation of Minoan Palace society tomorrow.
For anyone who is a fan of BBC's time team or Roman history in Britain, the British Museum has digitized photos and information for it's collection of Republican Roman coinage. It is pretty fabulous. I highly recommend a look.
To feast the ears, The Ancient World Online has posted a collection of recordings of Ancient Akkadian Epics. Excitingly, for anyone who took a general ancient history class in high school or college, the recordings include the Codex of Hamerabi and the Epic of Gilgamesh. Enjoy!
