Kicking away the dirt hiding Roman history and finding what lies beneath...have we got the age of Rome all wrong?

Lets get things started
There's one thing you'll notice about Ancient Romans after a while...okay, yeah, they're all dead...but apart from that, there's another important fact a lot of us tend to forget - they all lived. It's all too easy to look at a pile of broken stones and say "So what?" Well, that pile of stones was someone's home, their business, their place of worship or their favourite bar. They weren't too different from us. They worried about their families, their careers, and their bank accounts. They had good days and they had bad days - and they watched the clock just like us. Sure it's been two thousand years, but nothing's really changed, we're even writing on tablets again.
