comment What can you tell about a society from its architecture?
This is a question about architecture; "history" is only mentioned once, and there is no indication that you've done any research (for example, does the Educational Testing Service publish documentation that would answer your postscript?) This question seems more designed to elicit discussion than answers.

comment Roman gladiator games
Respectfully, I must disagree with Mr. Durden. At the moment, Questions that ask for references are out of scope, although the topic is being debated. Requests to support answers with references have never been criticized, nor, in my opinion, should they ever be.

"earlier in US history, meat was slaughtered and butchered domestically in rural" - perhaps the shift of 90% of economic activity from rural to urban settings might have had something to do with it?

comment Connection between “lingua franca” and Frankish people
I don't understand the question. If the dictionary defines "lingua franca" as "frankish language", then what is the question?

If it were a serious question, it would show preliminary research.
