Ancient history.

Everything you need to know to understand ancient history you can learn from the following words.

paria udonum ab Sattua solearum duo et subligariorum duo

They are from a letter sent with a package froma mother in Rome to her son recently stationed at Hadrians wall. They detail the contents of the package. 

Socks, two pairs of sandals and two pairs of underpants.

And only a day late.

    Add a bottle of tobasco sauce and it wouldn’t be much different than RVN in the 60’s

    The only thing missing is a sewing kit.
