Numbers, birthdays and time

10” Somewhere close, yet far enough, there’s a place where time cannot reach. A time suspended in a moment, where the Earth starts turning, and where you know I’ll be waiting. I’ll be the wings that keep your heart in the clouds and you’ll be the anchor  that keeps my feet on the ground.”

Time: an ancient village or a spaceship?

Monte Mozinho

Castro Monte Mozinho, Penafiel – north of Portugal *

This ancient Roman village is considered the biggest in The Iberian Peninsula.  It was built in the first century AC and it was discovered around 1943. Its extension (200 thousand m2) and survival in time are very unusual.  I’ve recently visited this amazing place with my students and took some pictures. Here they are.

Any resemblance with the Star Wars Han Solo spaceship is pure coincidence!
