Great series. Such a shame it only went two seasons, but the writers sure made good use of it. If you haven't seen it you definitely should.

The most amazing discovery in the remains by far was this:

It is simply astounding that the ancient Romans had this kind of technology. I guess we'll have to rewrite the history books on this one just like we had to do after Antikythera.

I work with a girl who was at HBO (finance) when they did that series. It was supposed to go further but the on-location shooting was astronomically expensive, made even more so by the Italian authorities sticking their hands out every three weeks. I asked why they didn't just pick it up and film in SoCal like everyone else and I think it was just a good money after bad decision.

I agree it was a great series, and it would have been epic had they continued it onward to the fall of Constantinople some 400 years later.

But hey take heart: there might be a SITC 3 coming out!

This is why archaeology exists, after all.

I know if it stays sealed, honey can last forever, but is there a possibility of any of the stuff they found still being, well, edible/good?

But besides that thing, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Yeah. Wish there was something else in the photo for size reference.

They have pulled amphora (with their seals intact ) up from the bottom of the Med plenty of times. Wine is probably going to be vineager if anything. If there was grain that might be good if the critters didn't eat it before dying. That fish sauce though, holy crap, I've read about how they made that stuff and I can't imagine it was too good when it was fresh.

Lutefisk in your amphora? It's more likely than you think.

Fermented fish sauce rocks. It may sound nasty, but it is the sausage of sauces.

I thought some of the varieties of the Roman stuff was "chunky", not like the modern fish sauce from southeast Asia.

But if you are looking to try some weirdly tasty dishes, find some old Roman recipes and give it a whirl. I made "Numidian Chicken" that was actually pretty tasty.

It was a nice honey-pepper flavor.

But seriously, try using a mix of vinegar, fish sauce, pepper, garlic and honey to punch up some sauteed veggies.

If there is grain in some of the amphorae and still well sealed, it could be a boon to archaeo-botany. IOW, don't eat the stuff, germinate and grow it. Just think, 2000 year old wheat wheat strains, untained by cross breeding/hybridization. Grow some of it, analyze the DNA and genetic blueprint. Hell, grow it, harvest, mill it and bake it. I'd try that.

This, right there.
