This is the Exact Spot Where Julius Caesar was Killed

Archaeologists working in Rome believe they have found the first actual evidence of the spot where Julius Caesar died on the Ides of March in 44 B.C. They have recently unearthed a concrete structure that they are positive was a monument erected by Augustus to commemorate his uncle's death. This spot, as you can see, is in the city center and open to the public so I say go there and say : 
" Doth not Brutus bootless kneel?  Speak, hands for me!   Et tu, Brute!
Liberty! Freedom! Tyranny is dead! Run hence, proclaim, cry it about the streets."

One of my favorite dipctions of Caesar from the HBO series Rome:
