♦Mod on Genealogy and Family History.SE

I love Jesus, classical music, history, and Italian food, in that order. I also enjoy studying math.

I've been playing music for about five years now and I am proficient on the cornet and the recorder. I also play a little piano on the side.

You might want to check out en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decline_of_rome. Lots of good stuff there. It's a rather broad topic

comment Where were the western legions when the Roman empire fell?
Not a complete answer, but the empire had been decline for decades (arguably the last century) due to abuse, civil wars, and more. There was negligible military strength left at the time of the collapse.

comment Are modern Greeks related to the ancient Greeks?
Visual appearance are not conclusive and are often misleading. Besides, how accurately are the ancient Greeks even being portrayed in these busts? For example, the top one, the Townley Discobolus, is a copy of an original, but the head is completely incorrectly positioned. No scientific analysis can be performed from such flawed sculptures.
