Kites and Romans

Inspired by the great aerial archeology work of dr. John Wells, we headed out to Prlekija to see if we cand find something with our kites.

Turns out - we maybe can!


On this kite aerial photo - with brutally enhanced contrast - you can see a (light, straight) Roman road, and a (dark, wavy) fossil riverbed, silted up long long ago ...

Check out the full story on our KAP website ... ;-)


  • @KAP_Jasa >>> Regarding that darkened riverbed area, is that a depression in the ground that is saturated with water? I was wondering about the cause for the discoloration.
  • Forgot to add: GOOD ON 'YA!
  • @CGKiteman - it's filled-up, so nothing can be seen from the ground (even the color difference is so subtle you don't notice it). but yeah, the reason for this difference is the riverbed being more saturated with water ...

    @KAP_Jasa >>> Rodger that - Thanks!

    AND...ANOTHER TWO THUMBS UP for YOU GUYS in particular, and KAP in general!

    [I tried to copy and paste two actual "THUMBS UP" emojis, but the board seems unhappy with that.}

    Amazing discovery of a piece of ancient Roman history. That's quite a find.

    Btw, apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

    EDIT: Toga parties? <<GRIN>>
