About us

ANTIQUITATEM is the result of the combined efforts of an old professor of Latin who has always been in love with the Old World, a young computer engineer, and a telecommunications engineer in the role of a willful English translator.

The content is aimed at a general reader interested in the Ancient World, without any specialization. But that does not mean that the articles and the information provided is not rigorous, but on the contrary, as befits a serious work.

Some readings may involve some difficulty: that can not produce discouragement but increase the interest, because certainly be worth the effort. In any case the articles selection will depend on what, in the opinion of the author, has any interest or enclose any lessons for the modern reader.

Antonio Marco Martinez
