rogueclassicism will be venturing into the wilds in about three hours and we're not sure what sort of internet access will be available, if any. Whatever the case, for the next two weeks, blogging will be infrequent, if at all ... Apologies for any inconvenience or withdrawal, but please visit our friends at Classics in Contemporary Culture, Hobbyblog,, Laudator Temporis Acti, Martialis, Blogographos, Sauvage Noble, and maybe even Cronaca and Mirabilis. We'll be back August 5, if not earlier. Salvete!

AWOTV: On TV Today

7.00 p.m. |HINT| Ancient Altered States
An examination of the frightening and even deadly substances that
people have used to alter their consciousness over the centuries.

10.00 p.m. |HINT| Time Team: Papcastle, Cumbria
When Ray and Helen Buckingham started building work on an extension
to their Cumbrian house in Papcastle, England, they found what looked
like Roman pottery and building-stone fragments. Puzzled, they
contacted Time Team--actor Tony Robinson (Baldrick in "Blackadder")
and his team of archaeologists, historians and other experts. Was the
couple's garden part of a Roman settlement or military staging post?
Time Team has just three days to piece together the surprising story.
