Re: alexander map, suggestions and help.

Good idea Marcus If you actually fing a Tomb of Achilles ill add it to my collection of Rocking Horse Manure. Not Troy as Im pretty sure it was a Strategic jump of point in those Ancient days and would wager the Greeks had an interest in the place,,,Not for a pretty girl I would add...But it was rea...

Re: Tyre siege.

Thanks for all the feedback with these two sieges...Im one on the readers Following Persepolis the Alexander story crosses over..Turnsback on itself and basically as a military enerprise loses quite a lot of its momentum. Upto Gaugamela I would say it was strategically straight foreward..Open terrai...

I think your idea with maps would be gre...

Re: Tyre siege.

To but in...What ive seen and read the mole is more visible from the Air..As a lot of things archeolococly are difficult to spot from ground level. I would say the mole ife excavated would be full of Evidence as readings suggest that parts of the Old city were torn down to make the mole..Plus all ty...

Re: Maybe Alexander Died in The Garden Of Eden

Re: Maybe Alexander Died in The Garden Of Eden

Well its fare to say its been said the Gardens were among the other wonders of the Ancient World as was the Statue of Rhodes. I think the Gardens were real any why not...The Babylonians had thewealth and creativity to do so and see no reason why the following Persians wouldnt maintain the gardens. A...

AgesiliI quite agree...As stated the Christians must have been like Al Quida to the Americans .. The Christians were blamed for the fire of Rome and as stated the Romans were pretty deep with punishment against those who upset Rome. Carthage was reduced to Rubble ans Spartacus men were Crucified alo...
