Origin

The Domus Caecilia started as an extension of my home at AncientSites in 1997. I wanted to add a few rooms to the standard ones that everyone else received: entrance, courtyard, library, and study. By using the same layout, font face, color scheme, and background image, I was able to divert visitors to my kitchen, dining room, and bedroom without them ever realizing that they had left the original site. When AncientSites shut down forever, I was lucky to have most of my files located on another server in the first place. All that I had to do was create a few pages to take the place of the original four rooms, and the domus never closed its doors. Over the years it has evolved into the present edifice, and the construction continues. Visit often!
