Corrected entry: Until the time of the Christian dominance of Rome, the Romans cremated their dead. There is no historical record that Caesar and Pompey buried their wives as depicted in the miniseries.


Correction: Actually, cremation was the preferred "burial" method, but burials (inhumation) did happen. After the 3rd century, burials became the preferred method. And since there is no historical documentation, the screenwriters are granted some artistic leeway. http://library.thinkquest.org/26602/ceremonies.htm.
