Very rare Roman bronze bell found in Britain at Aldborough near Great North road, North Yorkshire, Roman town and pre that Brigantes Citadel.
Historically a part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Aldborough was built on the site of a major Romano-British town, Isurium Brigantum. The Brigantes, the most populous Celtic tribe in the area at the time of the Roman occupation of Britain, used the settlement as a capital. Isurium may also have been the base of the Roman Legio VIIII Hispana.
Legio IX Hispana ("9th Legion – Spanish"), also written Legio nona Hispana or Legio VIIII Hispana, was a legion of the Imperial Roman army that existed from the 1st century BC until at least AD 120. The legion fought in various provinces of the late Roman Republic and early Roman Empire. It was stationed in Britain following the Roman invasion in 43 AD. The legion disappears from surviving Roman records after c. AD 120 and there is no extant account of what happened to it.

Mărturia Kassites – Lorestân [mileniul III î.e.n.]
A fost Mesopotamia leagănul civilizaţiei? Controversele persistă.
Clopoţelul meu din Munţii Zagros îşi strigă mut obârşia, dar şi chemarea:

Coroana clopoţeilor mei antici, o piesă de pe vremea când lumea punea temelia viitorului pe care îl trăim noi …
