The paw prints and hoof prints of a few meddlesome animals have been preserved for posterity on ancient Roman tiles recently discovered by archeologists in England.

"They are beautiful finds, as they represent a snapshot, a single moment in history," said Nick Daffern, a senior project.

Excellent point! Artifacts like these typify the beauty found in archaeology, it is something so familiar yet so temporally distant from us. Furthermore, D’AAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWW. Roman Puppies.

Women in Ancient Egypt

  • Women and men in ancient Egypt enjoyed the same legal and economic rights. Women could divorce their husbands and remarry.
  • Women and men were also subject to the same punishments.
  • Women worked many of the same jobs men did, most in the fields. Life was tough, though women did live longer than men (58, 54)
  • Women could hold political office, with several examples of female pharaohs available. There were at least 5, not including the Cleopatras and other Greek rulers.
  • Women could also hold lower political office, with many being scribes.
  • Women who were on their periods were considered to be removing impurities. They were excused from work and forbidden from some religious areas.
  • It is worth noting that when Egypt was conquered by Greece, Egyptian women retained many more rights than their Greek counterparts.
