@annapjudson Here's a nice ancient Greek fable in which a partridge has a close call! No fart jokes however... (Aesop via Babrius) #AesopRabbithole @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

@klosterfuchs @AgainstLore Here is just one of Martial's poems (IV.4) mentioning some of the bad smells of Rome, including a Tyrian (purple) dyed cloak. Ten of his epigrams reference perfume and I.87 talks about breath pastilles!  #Martial #epigrams #SmellyRome #SmellyClothes @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

In @AgainstTheLore's latest podcast about ancient clothing, I mention the fact that sometimes they didn't wear anything! Fishermen for example often worked in the nude as these mosaics & a relief from Ostia shows...   https://t.co/jvOzYDq0QV 📷via https://t.co/Y58UEnwgia @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

Count the fashion puns in #AgainstTheLore’s latest episode about #AncientClothing! I was privileged to be a guest and share some of my obsessions & revelations! 😁 https://t.co/6UPnfHUaO8 Here I am making the 'sign against evil' in not quite authentic Roman garb! 😁🧿 #Apotropaic @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

'I visualised the ancient world almost synaesthically. Rome was sparkling temples under sunny skies. Christianity made me think of driving rain & monks shivering in monasteries with guttering candles.' Tom Holland knocking it out of the ballpark as usual at #Unbelievable2021 👏 @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

Possibly #Apotropaic black-figure kylix from @GettyMuseum A farmer saw snake about to vanquish an eagle and pulled them apart. Frustrated Snake angrily spat venom in the farmer's drink but when he went to drink from it Eagle snatched the #kylix from his hand. #AesopRabbithole @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

Oh joy! An ancient fable about Why Dogs Sniff Bottoms! It includes hilarious scenes of a delegation of dogs getting overexcited by the smells of Olympus & then pooing in terror when Zeus appears! 💩 #AesopRabbithole (📷 of dog fresco on a Pompeian caupona by Luigi Spina) @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures

@CoppullPrimary Hi, Rosie! I spent about 2 years researching & writing the #RomanQuests. It takes me roughly half a year to write a book, sometimes less, sometimes more! I loved exploring parts of the UK where there are still Roman ruins like @RomanCaerleon & @RomanBathsBath 👍 @CarolineLawrenc Caroline Lawrence Videos and pictures
