JuliusCaesarWell, everyone: thanks for playing along! As you may be able to see with the full image, here, the mystery person is Julius Caesar. Why Julius? Why now? Just wanted to remind you that tomorrow, March 15th, is The Ides of March (“ides” meaning roughly the middle of the month on a Roman calendar). The Ides of March was the subject of the warning Caesar received from a soothsayer: “Beware the ides of March,” the day on which the soothsayer thought great harm might come to Caesar.

Congratulations to the few students who correctly identified Caesar based on his nose, eyes, and hair: Isaac, Veronique, Andrea, Riley, Cesar, Vicky, and Radford!

 

Want to know more about Caesar and the fateful warning? Find out about Caesar’s rule, and his downfall, by taking a look at the videos linked below. And, of course, be safe on the Ides of March (i.e. tomorrow).

    the hint about blacks and whites being friends was confusing, but if you had not put that there it would have been too obvious.
