The lamentable fate of Mike Stuchbery 🎃🍷 @MikeStuchbery_ (Freelance) Journalist, Historian, Teacher & Tour Guide ★ 🇦🇺 in 🇩🇪 ★ Contributing Editor at @BylineTimes ★ History at @TheLocalEurope ★ Resolutely ↙️↙️↙️ Apr. 26, 2019 1 min read

I retweeted @HistoryHit earlier today, it being the anniversary of the death of Marcus Aurelius. No, his son, Commodus, didn't do him in, and it's thought he died of a fever at a military fort called Vindobona - modern-day Vienna.

It's actually kind of amazing what they've found underneath Vienna. The Roman Museum is top-notch - I guarantee you you'll never look at ancient plumbing the same way. No, I'm serious. Genius.

I should be clear here before a pedant strikes - that's a hypocaust (under floor heating) you're looking at, not plumbing.
