Humanites - Ancient Rome 2 - The golden age of the Roman Empire (14 AD - 192 AD)
A brief history of Ancient Rome, through visits to many of the monuments that can still be found in the “Eternal City”. We’ll focus on the great monuments left for us by the ancient emperors from Tiberius to Marcus Aurelius. Ancient Roman monuments are not only visually impressive, but they can also help us to understand the complex history of this great civilization. We’ll spotlight their engineering skills and examine the differences between Ancient Greek and Roman architecture. At the Colosseum we’ll discuss the gladiatorial spectacles and their political function, together with other important monuments such as the Arch of Titus and Trajan’s Column.
