Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is May 18th, 2008, I’m Victoria, and I am here to tell you about a very interesting current event.
A bust of the famous Julius Caesar has been found on May 16th, 2008, in the Rhône River, southern France. The bust has many wrinkles around the face and a place of baldness.
Officials think it may date back to 46 b.c. This bust may be the oldest statue of Julius Caesar known to man.
Other artifacts were found as well as the bust, near the Arles, which was founded by Caesar in 46 b.c.
A statue of Neptune was found, 5.9 foot tall, with the bust. Two other bronze statues were also found.
Officials think they should be in for some more discoveries.
Remember, I’m Victoria, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!
