  1. Janet Stephens is probably a pretty good resource on ancient hairstyles. She does the forensic archaeology thing to try to recreate hairstyles seen in archaeological and historic sources using items that would have been available. If nothing else, you might find it fun. This is her Youtube channel:

  2. Alright, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m hardly an expert on Roman clothing. I have little knowledge of ancient dress, and what I do know is more skewed towards Greece – but at a quick glance and memories of the art that seeped into my latin classes a few years ago, it looks…alright. There’s not a lot of shows in this era to compare it to, so I’m not sure what kind of grade it would get, but the background characters in these screencaps look very good. That said, the second one is bothering me. It feels like chiffon and elastic.

  3. They did a pretty decent job capturing the details. The hairstyles are amazing and are probably some of the best recreations out there. It’s a pity the show didn’t last longer although the last episodes had some issues. A first rate effort.

  4. This was one of the few programs about ancient Rome that my Classical Archaeology professor and the students really liked. I can confirm that most of the clothes (styles, adornments and hair) are on point, or very close to being right. This was the only recreation of Roman life that we didn’t laugh outright at, or use as snark fodder (see, the travesty that is Pompeii).
