One of my favorite genres of art is showing life going on amid ruined structures.

Nice thread OP. There is indeed something alluring about ruins, both real and imagined. Sadly, I have currently got no relevant images to contribute - if the thread is still up, in the upcoming days I may get around to seeing if I can find anything interesting to post.

I'm pretty sure I have enough to reach the bump limit
just posting a bit at a time to keep this going for as long as possible

This is abysmal quality, anyone know any higher res versions or any way of sorting out the shittiness by editing it?

You Ever wonder what it was like for people living in the former Roman Empire in the 6th, 7th, 8th centuries seeing the old Roman architecture crumble and rot away?

>This masonry is wondrous; fates broke it
>courtyard pavements were smashed; the work of giants is decaying.
>Roofs are fallen, ruinous towers,
>the frosty gate with frost on cement is ravaged,

that 'work of giants' line is fascinating, no?
>>
>>4200097
Definitely
It's incredible how forgotten technics can make our ancestors seem superhuman
>>
>>4200097
Yeah, people seem to assume it was a literal belief that it was the work of giants but I disagree. I think it was purely literary, the Saxons were more than aware of events in the Roman Empire and familiar with how the Romans lived. Plus, it was written perhaps a quarter-of-a-millennium after they settled in Britain and had become Christianised, and there were monumental churches (the Romanesque basilica of All Saints in Brixworth) by that time too.

Bede (the monk and historian) was definitely aware of the Roman Empire IIRC, although he muddled the dates up a bit I believe.

Also the discovery of the Sutton Hoo burial hoard in the 1930s kind of put paid to the idea that Britain circa 500BC-1000BC was a complete savage land of zero culture or civilisation
