David S. Brody, ROMERICA: Roman Artifacts in America, Book Discussion and Autograph Party
Sun Dec 05 2021 at 02:30 pm to 03:30 pm
Westford Museum & Historical Society | Westford, MA
Advertisement“Scores of Roman-era coins, artifacts and fortifications have been found across New England and the Ohio River Valley. They didn’t just swim across the Atlantic on their own, of course. Most of them seem to date back to the 2nd century AD, around the same time that the Roman Ninth Legion—originally stationed in Great Britain—disappeared from history after deploying to Jerusalem to put down the Bar Kokhba uprising. Did members of the Roman Ninth Legion journey to America in the 2nd century? If so, is it possible they brought with them some of the lost Temple treasures?”
David S. Brody is a Boston Globe bestselling fiction writer and author of 15 books. His children call him a “rock nerd” because of the time he spends studying ancient stone structures which he believes evidence exploration of America prior to Columbus. A graduate of Tufts University and Georgetown Law School, he has appeared as a guest expert on documentaries on the History Channel, the Travel Channel, PBS, and the Discovery Channel. He and his wife, sculptor Kimberly Scott, lived in Westford for 21 years and currently reside in Newburyport.
