This week we're having a bit of a history lesson, courtesy of all you erudite people at Folksy!The Ides of March is 15th March in the Roman calendar, and was originally a festive day dedicated to the god Mars. It is also the day in 44 BC that Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times in the Roman Senate, which gave rise to Shakespeare's famous quotation "Beware the Ides of March" in his eponymous play. Today, the Ides of March is celebrated in Rome with a toga run. Sounds like much more fun to me.So we're taking a stroll through ancient history this week, focusing on the Roman empire.
