Archeology 201 Guidelines

If Indiana Jones happened to be a member of Tweb, this is where he'd hang out.

Welcome to the Archeology forum. Were you out doing some gardening and dug up a relic from the distant past? would you like to know more about Ancient Egypt? Did you think Memphis was actually a city in Tennessee?

Well, for the answers to those and other burning questions you've found the right digs.

Our forum rules apply here too, if you haven't read them now is the time.

    Whether or not information is sourced from Christian sites, "loony sites," or "Wikipedia" is irrelevant. If the sources cited by that site are valid, the information is valid. Also note - Wikipedia is considered unsuitable for use as a formal academic resource only because it is too readily subject to alteration. TWeb is not a formal academic site. If there is no reason for to consider the Wikipedia article's sources questionable, it is a valid resource.

      As rogue06 is coy about telling us his sources, we cannot verify their accuracy. However, what he wrote is a confection of muddled nonsense.

        Strangely, the information that rogue06 compares favourably with what I found years ago, and with what I am finding in current inquiries.
        However, there is much conflicting information, which forces an examination of primary sources, and even there some of the translations are questionable.

          I for one don't find it strange at all

          That anyone who bothers to investigate for themselves will find the same thing is probably why H_A can't address anything I said even after sneering that it was a "nonsensical claim." You would think that after that "assessment" she would be eager to demonstrate its accuracy, but for whatever reason she shows not the slightest interest in doing so.

          I'm always still in trouble again

            Delicious unintended irony oozing forth from yet again from the person who cites Richard Carrier as a legitimate source and who thinks Peter was a fictitious personage (talk about fringe beliefs ). And don't think for a moment that people aren't noticing that you still haven't even tried to refute a single line of what I wrote, but instead continue to sputter impotently as you attempt to direct attention elsewhere.

              I would recommend H H Scullard's Festivals and Ceremonies of the Roman Republic. 1981. Thames & Hudson. In part two of that work, "The Roman Year" he details every festival held, month by month.
