A moreishly entertaining and richly informative miscellany of facts about Rome and the Roman world. Do you kw to what use the Romans put the excrement of the kingfisher?

Its 500-odd entries range across every area of Roman life and society, from the Empress Livia's cure for tonsillitis to the most reliable Roman methods of contraception.
