About time I posted some Roman goodness again  

I've found the page for the British Museum's Hadrian exhibition, and it's actually very nicely done. I have a sneaking suspicion that it might all go down the drain when the exhibition ends later this month, so check it out while you can!

Hadrian: Empire and Conflict

The main video you can play if you follow the link is lovely. There's also a page of additional videos, which serve as short documentaries (one is about Hadrian as emperor, one about the infamous Wall in Britain, one about his awesome residence in Tivoli, and the last deals with how deeply rooted the perception of him as a philhellene is). I keep eyeing that "coming soon" section, though, because it looks like they're preparing something about Antinous. COME ON, PUT IT UP ALREADY!

I so wish I could see the whole exhibition, damn. But the site certainly makes not being able to more bearable.

OH WOW. The first video on the main index page is just brilliant. The narrator's voice is really smooth and I was incredibly frustrated not to be able to learn much more by the end of the video.
It really makes me want to go to London again. *heavy sigh*

Glad you enjoyed it! I was pleasantly surprised by it myself. I'd totally go there if I could now!
*sigh* Tell me about it...

Who wouldn't? this video looked like so much like a trailer movies so, yes, it would just make people want to rush and see the exhibition.

Yeah, that's true. I wish the Hadrian movie ended up as cool as this! XD

That looks like a lovely exhibit. It's a shame you can't see it in person :(

It seems so cool... Well, at least others will get properly educated.

No problem! I'm glad it's useful to you.
