This is very informative! I had the chance to go to Rome in the Spring of 2011, and it was great fun. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to go to this museum, but I DID explore the Colosseum. :)
Also. WHY DON’T OUR SCA PEEPS WEAR ANIMAL HEADS TO BATTLE?! If anyone finds a way to make this safe and functional, let me know. That would be totally badass.
