  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Six Hills   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
The Six Hills are a collection of Roman barrows situated alongside the Great North Road in Stevenage, Hertfordshire UK.
In fact, the Six Hills are almost certainly Roman burial mounds, dating from about 100 A.D., and probably mark the cremated remains of a wealthy local family.
They form the most complete Roman barrow group in the country, and stand in the very front rank of England's archaeological heritage.

The Roman Wall is the highlight of the journey, a Great Wall of China in miniature, a ribbon of ancient masonry snaking over the hills and valleys for 110km across the neck of Britain from Carlisle to Wallsend near Newcastle upon Tyne.
Typically, Roman engineering ensured a high quality and durable structure, diminished from its original seven-metre height not so much by erosion and decay over 1900 years as by its deliberate dismantling in later centuries for use in the construction of surrounding farmhouses and villages.
Roman soldiers lived and died fighting in these desolate hills and a sense of ghostly foreboding seems to pervade the countryside north of the Wall.

 Seven hills of Rome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Seven Hills of early Rome were the Cermalus, Cispius, Fagutal, Oppius, Palatium, Sucusa, and Velia, figuring prominently into Roman mythology, religion, and politics; the original city was held by tradition to have been founded by Romulus on the Palatine Hill (Collis Palatinus).
The now-famous Vatican Hill (Latin Collis Vaticanus) is northwest of the Tiber and is not one of the Seven Hills of Rome.
Likewise, the Pincian Hill (Latin Mons Pincius), to the north, and the Janiculum Hill (Latin Ianiculum), to the west, are not counted among the traditional Seven Hills.

 Head for the Roman Hills
The "hills" were convenient refuges from floods, summer heat, insects, and animal and human predators, and the porosity of the stone meant that there were numerous fresh water springs on their slopes.
The hills were really ridges or spurs created by streams running down the edges of the larger valley which had been cut by the Tiber River.
To the northwest of the Janiculum, the hill at the end of a second parallel ridge was called the Vatican (Vaticanus).

 The Battle of Cynoscephalae
Had Roman involvement in Illyria and the Macedonian alliance with Carthage in the Second Punic War (right after Cannae!) not made Rome and Macedon the best of friends, then peace of 205 BC was destined not to last.
As the Romans brought up their forces to meet the enemy at the pass, Philip simply ordered his phalanx to level their spears and attack.
The fact that a Roman officer could break away from his main force in an independent unit and so swing around to attack the Macedonian main force from behind illustrates this point perfectly.

 Intra Muros/Extra Muros -- Inside/Outside the Roman Walls
The Aurelian walls, if you think about it, are the biggest thing the Romans ever built in Rome, being only rivaled by the various aqueducts in other parts of the Empire, whose structures lie outside various municipal boundaries.
And they are still in good condition: they continued to serve their original defensive purpose until they were finally breached by the Bersaglieri in 1870, and that romantic event made the walls an even bigger immediate tourist attraction than they had already become.
Digs on several of the Roman hills have yielded remains of such fortified village boundaries dating from the appropriate period.

 The Seven Hills of Jerusalem
The northern summit (hill) is called Scopus [Hill One], the middle summit (hill) was called Nob [Hill Two], the highest point of Olivet itself, and the southern summit (hill) was called in the Holy Scriptures the "Mount of Corruption" or "Mount of Offence" [Hill Three] (II Kings 23:13).
What we observe is the fact that the ancients symbolically looked on the various capitals of the world as having "Seven Hills." The significance of this fact even had a meaning for the apostle John who, under the influence of Christ Jesus himself, wrote the Book of Revelation.
The fact that history has "Seven Hills" (or "Mountains") associated with FOUR world kingdoms: Babylon, Rome, Byzantium, and Jerusalem, there has been some confusion about which of these (or, perhaps, another "New City") was the intention of the apostle John who was writing for Christ Jesus in the Book of Revelation.
