Archaeologists find rare ancient Roman sundial


The 2,000-year-old sundial, a rare find because it is intact, according to the University of Cambridge, contains an inscription in ancient Roman lettering on its base that translates to the man’s name, “Marcus Novius Tubula, son of Marcus” and another on the dial that says he was a plebeian tribune.



Nothing like an inscription to get the blood flowing.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.
