If you consider the romance languages. French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and even Romanian an off chute of Latin then we must agree that Latin never died just changed or morphed into those countries languages. Even English owes many parts of Lingua to Latin.

Stephen, among their many "gifts" the Romans left us a dead language, Latin.

Comment by Stephen on July 30, 2018 at 2:50am

Whatever did the Romans do for us?

Just like today where visitors to Hadrian's wall would buy souvenirs, here it shows Roman travellers did the same.

The Staffordshire Moorland Pan or Llam Pan is a 2nd century CE enamelled pan made as a souvenir for Roman citizens that travelled to Hadrian’s Wall. Much like today, people travelled to the wall to see the edge of Empire and wanted a souvenir of their visit.
The inscription round the rim is engraved and then filled with enamel. The upper lip names forts on the wall: MAIS (Bowness-on-Solway), COGGABATA (Drumburgh), VXELODVNVM (Stanwix), CAMMOGLANNA (Castlesteads). The final part: RIGORE VALI AELI DRACONIS, is more elusive in meaning, but refers to the wall VALI, and probably a soldier DRACO. AELI may be part of his name, but was also Hadrian’s family name, so may go with VALI, indicating that the Romans called the wall the “Aelian Wall”.

Revealed: The mystery of why a Confederate submarine sank, after becoming the first in the world to sink an enemy warship, has been solved… the crew failed to release a 1,000lb block that would have allowed it to surface 

The first submarine to down an enemy ship was sunk itself after its crew failed to release an emergency weight to help it resurface.
Crew aboard the Confederate vessel HL Hunley did not disconnect the 1,000lb keel blocks to help it rapidly resurface, resulting in the sub being trapped underwater and the men dying from lack of oxygen.
Scientists who removed the corrosion, silt and shells from the boat found the levers all locked in their regular position, solving a mystery dating back to 1864.

Nelson Mandela's letters from prison chart his heartbreaking struggle against apartheid

Nelson Mandela left a rich archive of letters documenting his time behind bars. The letters, many never seen before, express anger, self-control and his love for his family and count

Nelson Mandela wrote hundreds of letters during the 27 years that he was imprisoned; heartbreaking letters to his family, more mundane notes requesting spectacles from prison governors, and letters to officials, authorities and supporters continuously demanding change and an end to apartheid.
His correspondence was always thoughtful and elegantly composed and yet he was aware that many of his letters would never reach their intended destination. To commemorate what would have been his 100th birthday, a book of 250 letters has just been published, providing a remarkable insight into the man, his tenacity and endurance and the struggle for his country's freedom.

To Zenani and Zindzi Mandela, his middle and youngest daughters, 4 February 1969
My Darlings,
The nice letter by Zindzi reached me safely, and I was indeed very glad to know that she is now in Standard 2. When Mummy came to see me last December, she told me that both of you had passed your examinations and that Zeni was now in Standard 3. I now know that Kgatho and Maki have also passed. It pleases me very much to see that all my children are doing well.

I hope that you will do even better at the end of the year. I was happy to learn that Zeni can cook chips, rice, meat, and many other things. I am looking forward to the day when I will be able to enjoy all that she cooks.

Zindzi says her heart is sore because I am not at home and wants to know when I will come back. I do not know, my darlings, when I will return. You will remember that in the letter I wrote in 1966, I told you that the white judge said I should stay in jail for the rest of my life.
It may be long before I come back; it may be soon. Nobody knows when it will be, not even the judge who said I should be kept here. But I am certain that one day I will be back at home to live in happiness with you until the end of my days.

Do not worry about me now. I am happy, well and full of strength and hope. The only thing I long for is you, but whenever I feel lonely I look at your photo which is always in front of me. It has a white frame with a black margin. It is a lovely photo. For the last two years I have been asking Mummy to send me a group photo with Zindzi, Zeni, Maki, Kgatho, Nomfundo [Mandela's niece] and Kazeka. But up to now I have not received it. The photo will make me even more happy than I am at the present moment.
Many thanks for the wonderful Christmas cards you sent me. Apart from yours, I received one from Kgatho and another from Mummy. I hope you received more.
