roman mysteries

I was not going to write about the TV series ” Roman Mysteries ” – assuming that all of you have heard of it . However yesterday while I was chatting with Ikarus – when I mentioned that I was currently watching the series  he told me that he never heard of them – so I decided that after all they deserve to at least be mentioned at I must admit that I am not a big fan of TV series – but they do a fine job when I am tired or don`t have time to watch a full length film .

Roman Mysteries follows the stories of Flavia, Nubia, Jonathan, and Lupus, four young friends growing up in Ancient Rome. The TV series are based on the books by Caroline Lawrence. I haven`t read them yet – but would like to do that soon.  The series were filmed in Bulgaria , Malta and UK with a budget exceeding 10 millions British pounds – which is probably why the overall image in the series is quite good.  The casting is quite good for TV series – and most of the actors delivered good performances .


I have always been interest in ancient history – Greek , Rome , Visantian empire . I even took classes in Latin while I was attending high school and even I found it rather hard language  I really enjoyed the classes ( much thanks to my teachers ) . Roman Mysteries could entertain – but I am not so sure if there is much of educational value in them. At the end I guess – my opinion on Roman Mysteries is a bit biased – as I myself am found of the popular  “Rome” series – as they seem to be more intense and intriguing .

  3. It has been a while since I wrote my article about Roman Mysteries and I kept watching them. My opinion has not changed much – but yes since most of the stories are split in 2 episodes – watching one a night gives you something to look for the next night. It will be good if more people find out of the series …watch them and share their views …
