For some odd reason I found that fascinating...

The scary thing is that someone probably used that information for an anthropology thesis and got a degree out of it.

That held my attention far longer than I thought it would, up to the point where they had her looking like Ludacris. Which would be a decent name for a (old school) Latin rapper.

well that was awesome subby. thank you.

Wow that was really interesting. I also didn't realize you could be an archaeology hairdressing specialist.

I wonder how long it took someone to figure out that hairstyle and why it was associated with Vesta and Virginity.

Once she has her hair done, she's leaving for the coast.

Yes, it's scary that through three-dimensional topological analysis and modeling of ancient sculpture, someone could recreate a complex interwoven hairstyle that no one has seen in centuries, and be awarded a degree for their efforts.

How are you even able to go on the internet, in a world that is so scary?

Yeah, this is really no different than reconstructing their pottery making or metal working techniques or concrete recipe or whatever, which may be more practical than hairstyling, but to us is still just an interesting little historical tidbit and an insight into everyday life in the Roman Empire.

Fascinating! Thanks subby, and thanks mods for greenlighting this.

But as interesting as it was, the burning question in my mind now is "what does her tattoo say"? The script is Tengwar, of course, but the images are not clear enough for me to make it out entirely. The first two words appear to be "i cari"which in Quenya would be "the heads".

The third word is very blurred but appears to start with anna, end with vilya, might have a short carrier in the middle and the tehta appears to be an o sign. wor? ior? That's can't be right.

The last word clearly starts with halla and ends with with either tinco or parma Could it be herat? Lords (dual) ?

I wish I had a better picture!

And now. For a recreation of the lesbian orgies that took place. Bow chika bow bow...

I went into that expecting to fully exercise my "skip ahead on the timeline" finger, but instead watched the whole thing including the credits. The History channel (which airs less and less history as time goes on, ironically) should look to this for inspiration.

What struck me most is that the finished product was very flattering, and somehow youthful. For someone with the right face shape (I think a medium long oval would work best), it would be a beautiful style. Very easy on the eyes, and not just because the model was an attractive young woman. Of course, some asshat would call it a religious headscarf (which I suppose it is, albeit for a dead religion) and therefore somehow offensive to American moral principles.

Nice neck tat on that model though, I must question her suitability as a candidate into the vestal order or virgins.

/would gladly conduct a thorough examination of the candidate.

Actually, I've recently noticed a marked improvement in their programming. Far fewer aliens and squatches and such. Really recent. Almost like someone in power there was die hard 2012 Mayan end of the world believer who is currently disillusioned since the world didn't end.

I wanted to make a tasteful comment about how beautiful the model is but, instead, I give you:

I'd like to give her the old Seni-PENIS if you know what I mean.

Vestal virgins? Vava voom!

To be fair, what gender is a post anyway?

Oh wow she has other videos. They used to STITCH hair together so it would stay in place pre-hairspray and elastic bands.

In a few weeks, this hairstyle will be selling for $400 in Hollywood and $600 in Da Hood.

Reading out your dissertation in a pretentious voice is no way to make a Youtube video, young lady.
