The history of the Jews in the Roman Empire traces the interaction of Jews and Romans during the period of the Roman Empire (27 BC – AD 476). Their cultures began to overlap in the centuries just before the Christian Era.

A 3D-printed copy of the skull was used as the base of the facial reonstruction. Adelasius had unusually good teeth for the time.

Adelasius Ebalchus has a decidedly Latin name for a man who lived in Switzerland around 700 A.D., centuries after the western Roman Empire fell apart. That choice of name was deliberate, explains Mirjam Wullschleger of the Solothurn state archaeology department. It was at this time that Germanic peoples were moving into the Swiss Plateau in the country’s north, changing the language and culture of the remnant Roman empire to that of the German-speaking Alemanni tribe.

The funeral details have been released of tragic Voice of Ireland singer Andrew Mann

The funeral details have been released of tragic Voice of Ireland singer Andrew Mann Andrew Mann, the Voice and 2012 Eurosong contestant died on Saturday – just over three months after his tragic girlfriend Alli McDonnell. The Dublin model and mum-of-four took her own life last February. The notice reads that dad-of-two Andrew will be ‘very sadly missed’ by his ‘Mum and Dad, children, sisters, brothers, their partners, nieces, nephews, aunt, uncles, cousins, relatives and a very large circle of friends’. His funeral will be held at the the Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel, Churchview Road, Killiney arriving for 11am Requiem Mass with funeral immediately afterwards to Shanganagh Cemetery, Shankill.

The causes and mechanisms of the Fall of the Western Roman Empire are a historical theme that was introduced by historian Edward Gibbon in his 1776 book The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire .

The Roman emperors were the rulers of the Roman Empire dating from the granting of the title of Augustus to Gaius Julius Caesar Octavianus by the Roman Senate in 27 BC.

Adelasius’ name, and most of what we think we know about him, however, is speculation. His face was reconstructed from a skeleton discovered in 2014, recovered from one of 47 early medieval graves excavated ahead of building construction in the town of Grenchen in northern Switzerland. He was interred in a Roman-style burial, in a grave lined and covered with rocks and his feet pointing north.

Adelasius Ebalchus, who lived in northern Swizterland 1,300 years ago. He was in his late teens or early twenties when he died.

Based on his remains, researchers determined Adelasius was between 19 and 22 years old and about 5 feet, 6 inches tall. He suffered from chronic osteomyelitis, a bone infection, and vitamin deficiencies—the combination of which likely led to his early death. His rock-lined grave may indicate a higher social status than other people living in Grenchen at the time.

UKIP candidate investigated over rape comment

UKIP candidate investigated over rape comment A police investigation has been launched into whether a UKIP election candidate broke the law by suggesting he "might" rape a Labour MP. Carl Benjamin, who had previously said he "wouldn't even rape" Jess Phillips, posted an online video suggesting that "with enough pressure I might cave". After announcing a list of spoof UKIP policies, including invading Spain and restoring the British Empire, Benjamin said in a video posted on his YouTube channel: "There's been an awful lot of talk about whether I would or wouldn't rape Jess Phillips.

When Oscar Nilsson, an archaeological facial reconstructor, was commissioned to reconstruct the face of Adelasius Ebalchus, he was struck not only by the quality of the 3D-printed skull he had to work with, but also the state of his historical model’s dental work.

“I’ve never seen more even or perfect teeth,” says Nilsson, who has worked on facial reconstructions from remains going back to the Paleolithic. “It’s not the typical case for me. Quite often, I have to start reconstructing the teeth by looking at what’s around them.” See the face of a man from the last gasps of the Roman Empire © Photograph courtesy Department of Archaeology of the Canton Solothurn, Switzerland

Adelasius was buried in a grave lined with rocks, which may indicate he was of high social status.

Nilsson knew that he wanted to highlight Adelasius’ teeth and decided that the reconstructed face would smile—a decision he doesn’t take lightly.

When doing facial reconstructions—especially for law enforcement work—it’s not advisable to give your subject a smile, says Nilsson. It distracts from the overall physical impact of the reconstruction, he explains, while creating “an unconscious assumption that it’s a happy person.”

“I don’t want to describe a personality I know nothing about,” he says. “At the same time, though, I need to create a face that gives the impression that this person was once alive and has a soul.”

Nilsson has worked on individuals from many regions and time periods, but early medieval Switzerland was a first for him. “It’s quite exciting and quite under explored. I hope I can put some light into this period of history.”

Adelasius will be exhibited at Grenchen’s Kultur-Historischen Museum through early June, and then in November be put on permanent display at Solothurn’s state museum of archaeology in Olten.

ISIS bride Lisa Smith 'will not face prison on return' to Ireland.
The 38-year-old former Air Corps steward, who joined ISIS in 2015, will be repatriated - but is unlikely to serve a sentence here. Lack of legislation and a strong burden of proof means it will be difficult to secure a conviction against Smith, despite Syrian documents allegedly listing her as training young girls in weapons near Raqqa. Well-placed sources have expressed dismay that Smith, who is currently in a camp in Syria with her young daughter, will not be imprisoned here.
