Cicero’s Quote on History

Work is always continuing at the office with our various projects on the go. We look forward to presenting new sites soon. During my research this week, I came across this quote from Cicero, the Roman orator (among many of his other talents). He wrote:

History is truly the witness of times past… Whose voice, but the orator’s, can entrust her to immortality?”(De Oratore 2.36)

The modern orator or storyteller is able to provide a glimpse into past worlds. We take our role as orators and re-creators very seriously. We pride ourselves on accurate reconstructions using current archaeological and historical evidence to support our digital reconstructions.

We believe that by providing a remarkable and current image of the past we can, as Cicero believed, provide an immortal view of ancient events from a bygone era.
