Ancient Tomb Discovered Below Roman Forum - ROBERT SEPEHR



Archaeologists have uncovered an area devoted to the first King of Rome and a rock sarcophagus, which are believed to date back to the 6th century BC. The underground temple is buried beneath the entrance stairway to the Senate building where Roman senators voted. The shrine has a Greek inscription referring to how the sacred ground must not be disturbed.


In Roman mythology, Romulus and his twin brother Remus were left in a basket on the River Tiber. The pair survived, and a she-wolf found the twins at the the base of a fig tree after their mother was forced to abandon them. The wolf cared for the boys and raised them, letting them suckle on her. Romulus later killed his brother Remus in a fight on what became Palatine Hill in 753 BC, and became the first King of Rome.

Bearded Gods of Ancient Peru - ROBERT SEPEHR


Almost all native tribes in the Western Hemisphere preserve oral traditions about the ancient appearance of a bearded god or gods who arrived, or emerged, in ancient times. Quetzalcoatl to the Aztec, Kukulkan to the Maya, but some of the most interesting versions of this widespread tradition comes from Peru, where this legendary deity is known as Kon Tiki Viracocha, as documented by numerous highly acclaimed Peruvian historians, who when considered together, give us a reasonably detailed description of the traditional hero’s physical appearance, personality, and activities among the ancestors of the Andean Indians of the Inca empire.

Ancient Egyptian Board Game of Death - ROBERT SEPEHR

An ancient Egyptian 'board game of death' was used to communicate with the dead about 3,500 years ago. The game, called Senet, was played at all levels of Egyptian society from when it first emerged 5,000 years ago, played by two competitors, on a board that resembled a cross between chess and backgammon. Ancient Egyptian texts describe the game as depicting the movement of the soul through the Egyptian realm of the dead.





A Senet board is located in the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, and while some believe the board started out as entertainment, Egyptian tomb art depicts the tomb’s dead inhabitant playing Senet against living friends and relatives, with Texts from the time suggesting the game had been seen as a conduit through which the dead could communicate with the living.

Legendary Libraries of the Ancient World - ROBERT SEPEHR



In our modern information age, it seems that libraries have become almost obsolete. But in antiquity, libraries were the great storehouses of knowledge, magnificent structures where humanity's collective wisdom and history was preserved, where records were stored for future generations to learn from, and add to. In the ancient world, there are several examples that come to mind, from the Great Library of Alexandria, to the Royal Library of the Assyrian ruler Ashurbanipal, considered the oldest surviving royal library in the world.

5 Epic Viking Stories - ROBERT SEPEHR

The Viking Age, the period of great Scandinavian expansion from the late 8th to the late 11th century – is normally associated with violent raids and warfare. But in fact, Viking people were highly civilized, and greatly valued the arts – especially storytelling, about ancient myths, heroic legends, folk tales, and family and local histories.




These stories circulated orally, often in the form of epic poems, usually passed on through successive generations, but many were written down in the 13th century, mainly by scholars in Iceland, which today form the basis of much of what we know about ancient Norse myths and legends, Sagas which are supposedly based on true stories of real Viking Age people.

Massive Network of European Underground Tunnels Discovered - ROBERT SEPEHR

A massive network of 12,000 year old underground tunnels discovered that stretch throughout Europe. Some experts believe the network was a way of protecting man from predators while others suggest the idea that the linked tunnels were used like motorways are today, for people to travel safely regardless of wars or violence or even weather above ground. They could be described as a kind of ancient underground superhighway. Others think the tunnels can be seen as a gateway to the underworld.

The Legend of Beowulf - ROBERT SEPEHR



One of the most important works of Old English literature, Beowulf is an epic poem consisting of over 3,000 lines, beautifully written in alliterative verse. Set in Scandinavia, Beowulf was the hero of a northern Germanic tribe, in what is now southern Sweden, who comes to the aid of a Danish king, who came under attack by Grendel, a descendant of the Biblical Cain. After Beowulf slays him with his bare hands, Grendel's mother also launches an attack, but is also defeated with a giant's sword that he found.


Victorious, Beowulf goes home to Sweden, and becomes king of a sect of sea-faring Goths, called Geats. Before the consolidation of Sweden, they were politically independent of the Swedes, and have now disappeared into legend and history. 50 years after becoming a Geatish king, Beowulf finds his realm terrorized by a dragon, who he then defeats, but is mortally wounded in the battle. After his death, his attendants cremate his body and erect a tower in his memory.


Written sometime after the year 700, the full story survives in the manuscript known as the Nowell Codex, now housed in the British Library.. It has no title in the original manuscript, but has become known by the name of the story's hero. But besides being an entertaining story, with great battles with monsters and dragons, could these be metaphors for actual events pertaining to historic wars grounded in truth?

Eastern European Culture and Mythology - ROBERT SEPEHR

Samodivas are woodland fairies found in South and West Slavic folklore and mythology, commonly depicted as ethereal maidens with long hair, and in some cases, wings. In Macedonian folklore, they were said to inhabit oak or willow trees, and in Romanian mythology they are known as Iele, with great seductive power over men, and magic skills and attributes similar to nymphs found in Greek mythology, sometimes reported to have been seen bathing in the springs or at crossroads.



Another important aspect of the Balkan myths surrounding Samodivas is their dance, with similarities to ancient Thracian and Greek legends, which included songs and dances performed by fire-priestesses.
