❝ Writing is not like dancing or modeling; it’s not something where – if you missed it by age 19 – you’re finished. It’s never too late. Your writing will only get better as you get older and wiser. If you write something beautiful and important, and the right person somehow discovers it, they will clear room for you on the bookshelves of the world – at any age. ❞

— Elizabeth Gilbert

My favorite source was Roman Warfare (Smithsonian History of Warfare) by Adrian Goldsworthy.  I would do another one of my PowerPoints on Roman tactics, but I doubt that’s in high demand.  

The last image came from ‘education.blurtit.com’, which, altogether, isn’t a half-bad website.

Ohhh, glorious!
