Hoplitas: Hoplites were citizen-soldiers of Ancient Greek city-states who were primarily armed with spears and shields. Hoplite soldiers utilized the phalanx formation in order to be effective in war with fewer soldiers.
I love the study of Ancient Roman architecture, art, history and the incredible society they built. The Romans used a sauce from dead fish guts to season their food. It is akin to today's Worcester sauce. Who knew?
