 Roman Britain - Search View - MSN Encarta
Governors of Britain in the 1st and 2nd centuries, and of northern Britain in the 3rd, were actively involved in campaigning; but it is important not to underestimate the governor's no less onerous task as an administrator and supreme justice within the province.
From the early 3rd century, a line of forts was established along the south-eastern coast of Britain to serve as protection against attack from the sea.
Although the walls ostensibly define the town's extent, they were in fact added only later, for the most part in the 3rd century, and do not fully define the built-up area of the agglomeration; there were often undeveloped areas within the walls and suburbs without.

 Rome: Roman Iron - The Equipment and Weapons of th :: 0 A.D. :: Wildfire Games
By the mid 1st century AD the lorica segmentata had become the standard issue cuirass of the Roman legions, but it could never replace the hamata, which was used until the end of the Roman Empire in one form or another.
By the 4th century AD the Roman army had changed radically from the early Empire: the weapons had changed from pilum and gladius to lancea and spatha, armor from segmentata to hamata, and helmets from Gallic to Ridge style.
While it was reserved for cavalry in the early Empire, by the 4th century AD the Roman army was composed of mostly Germanic soldiers who were used to wielding the longer sword and the spatha became the standard issue sword of the army.

 THE CULTURAL AND ETHNIC SITUATION IN LATVIA DURING THE EARLY AND MIDDLE IRON AGE (1st - 8th Century AD)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Between the 7th and 12th centuries, Lettigallians tended to have broad faces (Denisova1990), while the people buried in burial mounds in the first half of the first millennium were mostly narrow-faced (Česnis 1985; Deņisova 1989).
In the 7th century, people stopped burying their dead in graves surrounded by stone enclosures, something that was most common in the Lithuanian part of this culture's territory [Tautavičus1980].

 Date of the Millennium
The western calendar, with BC/AD (or BCE/CE) dates, was invented by the monk Dionysius Exiguus in the 6th century AD.
Of course, it would be quite possible to redefine the start of a century as the "round number" and define the 20th century as 1900 to 1999.
However, this would mean that the 1st century AD and the 1st century BC would have only 99 years each.

 The Masoretic Text   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
The Hebrew of the 1st century AD was closely akin to the Greek Septuagint that we have today; this is clear because, although the Hebrew was little used, when it was used in ancient writing it was clearly in agreement with the Greek Septuagint rather than the Masoretic Text.
What we do know is that toward the end of the 1st century AD and into the 2nd century, the Talmudic, Edomite Jews were actively attacking the Greek Septuagint because it was used by the Christians.
From the 1st century to the middle of the 5th century, they called themselves Talmudists; from the 5th century to the completion of their text in the 10th-11th centuries, they called themselves Masoretes.

 Poisons, Poisoning, and Poisoners in Rome
B.C. A growing incidence of poisoning is recorded in the 1st century AD, which reached an alarming peak during the reign of the Julio-Claudian emperors.

In contrast, during the prosperous 2nd century AD when the tensions and fear of the previous two centuries made way for peace and quiet, very few deaths due to poisoning have been recorded.

 Cleomedes (print-only)
Died: 1st century AD Cleomedes is known only through his book On the Circular Motions of the Celestial Bodies which is an uninspiring astronomy textbook.
Not least of these is the fact that this was a period when many second rate textbooks of this nature were written and the style is not unlike that of other fourth century AD texts, some of which give the same astronomical data as Cleomedes.
Neugebauer admits that the city of Lysimachia was destroyed in 144 BC which seems at odds with his own date of 370 AD for Cleomedes but he is able to show that despite the disaster of 144 BC records of the city certainly extend up to the fourth century AD.
