Roman Road

At the beginning of Wattling Street (Edgware road) is Marble Arch and this was the area called Tyburn and this is where the infamous Tyburn hanging tree or Gallows was sited. Today all that is left of those gruesome days is a stone set in the ground on a traffic island.

Lots of history there Stephen.

I live on the Maida Vale part of Edgware road.

"Edgware Road is a major road through north-west London, starting at Marble Arch in the City of Westminster (south end) and running north to Edgware in the London Borough of Barnet. It is also a boundary between several North London boroughs. The route has its origins as a Roman road (part of Watling Street) and therefore runs for 10 miles in an almost perfect straight line, which is unusual in London. It is part of the modern A5 road. It undergoes several name changes along its length, including Maida Vale, Kilburn High Road, Shoot Up Hill and Cricklewood Broadway; but the road is, as a whole, known as the Edgware Road, as it is the road to Edgware."

A really interesting way to explain Roman London. Roman London from the air and below ground.

Archaeologists uncover earliest evidence for equid bit wear in the ancient Near East

An international team of archaeologists has uncovered the earliest example of the use of a bridle bit with an equid (horse family) in the Near East. The discovery provides first evidence of the use of the bit (mouth piece) to control an animal long before the appearance of the horse in the Near East.

Evidence of the bridle bit was derived from the skeleton of a donkey dating to the Early Bronze Age III (approximately 2700 BCE) found at the excavations of the biblical city Gath (modern Tell es-Safi) of the Philistines, the home of Goliath, located in central Israel. The donkey was laid as a sacrificial offering before the construction of a house in a domestic neighborhood.
The international team, including archaeologists from Bar-Ilan University, the University of Manitoba (St. Paul's College), University of Saskatchewan (St. Thomas More College), Ariel University and Grand Valley State University published their findings today in the journal PLOS ONE.
"This is significant because it demonstrates how early domestic donkeys were controlled, and adds substantially to our knowledge of the history of donkey (Equus asinus) domestication and evolution of riding and equestrian technology. It is also significant that it was discovered on the remains of an early domestic donkey that was sacrificed probably as an offering to protect what we interpret to be a merchant domestic residence uncovered during our excavations," said Prof. Haskel Greenfield, of the University of Manitoba, the paper's lead author.

This is a really cool Roman Empire Map

shows Europe in 117 AD when the Roman Empire was at its greatest extend. I am endlessly fascinated by the bureaucracy that old empires established to manage large territories. Source:
