what i like most about this piece that i would like to incorporate into my own boss concept is the impression he presents of himself by the way he stands and his look. Just by looking at the character you know he is someone of power and not to be taken lightly. this is something i wish to project onto my own characters.

Roman roads, together with Roman aqueducts and the vast standing Roman army, constituted the three most impressive features of the Roman Empire. In Britain, as in their other provinces, the Romans constructed a comprehensive network of paved trunk roads (i.e. surfaced highways) during their nearly four centuries of occupation (43 - 410 AD).

The ancestry of the Roman alphabet from Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs) to Semetic (early Hebrew) to Phoenician to Greek. (J, U, and W were late additions to the Roman alphabet.) The Ancient Egyptian name for their own writing system was "Metu Neter" - meaning divine speech. "Hieroglyphs" is a Greek word - "hieros" means "sacred", "glyph" means writing.

"L'aigle de la neuvième légion"/"The Eagle" (2011). Channing Tatum (Marcus Flavius Aquila). A la recherche de l’illustrissime IXème légion anéantie par les Pictes à l'est de l'actuelle Ecosse. L’histoire de ce péplum suit le film Centurion. En vérité, les historiens ne s’accordent pas sur la façon et le lieu où cette légion a disparu.
