History of the world,studied in conjunction with the History of Sanatana Dharma is interesting.
It shows a wealth of evidence that Sanatana Dharma was present throughout the world and is the forerunner of world civilizations, be it Europe,Asia,Americas,Australia…
I have posted articles on the Vedic links to
And the aerial view of Vatican resembles Shiv Linga(please check my article on this)
I am looking into the links between Sanatana Dharma and Minoan Civilisation.
I have some information Linking the pre roman, pre christian to Vedic civilization.
Etruscan civilisation existed around 8 century 2 BC in Italy and is believed to have ruled the whole of Italy.
But very little information is available about them.
One of the reasons, like what christianity has done to African Religion, is the systematic obliteration of the Etruscan civilisation and its history by the Romans.
“Etruscan civilization is the modern English name given to a civilization of ancient Italy. Its homeland was in the area of central Italy, just north of Rome, which is today called Tuscany.
The Sanatana link to the present civilizations is not visible directly as except Sanatan Dharma all other civilizations that existed between Santana Dharma and the present civilizations have disappeared.
If one digs patiently and traces history of these lost civilizations, one would find that the root of world civilizations is Sanatana Dharma.
My articles deal with these facts.
Now information on Rome and Italy.

I have come across information that Rome was founded on Rama Navami Day, the Birth Day of Lord Rama.
‘According to tradition, on April 21, 753 B.C., Romulus and his twin brother, Remus, found Rome on the site where they were suckled by a she-wolf as orphaned infants. Actually, the Romulus and Remus myth originated sometime in the fourth century B.C., and the exact date of Rome’s founding was set by the Roman scholar Marcus Terentius Varro in the first century B.C.
“On this day the Romans keep a festival which they call the birthday of the city. At this feast, originally, we are told, they sacrificed nothing that has life, but thought it right to keep the anniversary of the birth of the city pure and unpolluted by blood.” (page 38, Chapter XII)( Plutarch’s Lives, Volume 1 )
Plutarch cites Lucius Taroutius Firmanus, a Roman astrologer, in reference to the founding date of April 21st:
Romulus “consecrated his city, having fetched men from Etruria, who taught him how to perform it according to sacred rites and ceremonies, as though they were celebrating holy mysteries.” (pg. 38, Plutarch’s Lives, Volume 1, Chapter XI)
We know that Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus – twins suckled by an Etruscan she-wolf. If you don’t know, just ask. These curious twins a dual origin – as dual like they were. First an Etruscan origin, but there is another. Which one? The investigation begins.
….Seek what their names mean, these wild children. First Remus – says good oldGaffiot?
Let’s have a look at his brother Romulus : the suffix -ulus is recognized, a diminutive which means little.Romulus, Little Rom. Or Little Ram? Really good old Rama left living traces of his passage everywhere – traces still visible today in our lexicons. Romulus is son of the god Rama, his name is quite simply Little Rama. Later, when Romulus has founded Rome, the Etruscan tribe Ramnes or Ramnensès became his army. Ram Nes, those of Ram. Note also that Rome – or rather Roma – is the city of Rama.
Similarly Rom people, or Roms, are descendants of Rama and his clan. Throughout his progress towards far east, Ram founded cities where he left his faithful people – heirs of his blood and manners. They founded ramaïques lines, most of which are still recognizable today.
Whether Romulus was the son of Ram in the flesh or in the spirit, is hard to decide. Certainly many millennia have passed since the birth of Ram when Roma was founded.
