This ‘warlord’ wasn’t Roman, but he had Roman goods in his grave. Long distance trade, perhaps.
These had been misidentified for quite a while. One wonders why it took so long to give them a ‘second look’.
I seem to remember posting something about extending the Roman empire because of finds in Germany a while ago. Very interesting site.
Narrative on the finding of Tenea. Pretty incredible find.
I’d be interested to know what the relationship between these two men was, whether familial, military, or of the heart. I doubt without the newly discovered method of deciding sex of these that it would have occurred to anyone that they were both of the same sex. The fact that that was a surprise goes to show how ingrained our preconceptions are about this kind of thing.
