The March wallpaper for desktops, laptops or mobile devices is a view of the presentation of the remains of the Roman amphitheatre in London
What is left of the amphitheatre from the time of the Romans in London may very well be nothing like that of the Colosseum in Rome. But, the way in which the meagre remains (foundations of the east entrance to the arena) have been presented in the basement of the London Guildhall Art Gallery is quite fascinating. The use of glow in the dark lines to reconstruct the amphitheatre as well as to add some actors and action is an excellent touch. In my opinion, it also makes for a great image.
Follow these links for more background and information about visiting the Guildhall Art Gallery and Roman Amphitheatre, and for more of Roman Londinium, there is the London Roman and Medieval Wall. See also the Guide to Roman Amphitheatres throughout the ancient Roman World.

The Archaeology Travel wall 2014 calendar is still available
Choosing thirteen images was not easy – but it had to be done: one for the cover, and one each for the twelve months of the year to create an archaeology themed calendar for 2014. My choice for the cover (seen here) is a fragment of a painted wall from the temple at the Roman site of Jublains in north western France. A few of the other twelve images are Ramesses III’s memorial temple of Medinet Habu on the West Bank of Luxor in Egypt, and another Egyptian choice – Cleopatra’s Needle on the banks of the Thames River in London. Review the calendar, there is no obligation to purchase, … click here.
