Overview

Did you ever stop and notice how much your daily life is influenced by the contributions of the Romans? Satire, tax shelters, the interstate highway system, the sports stadium, the health club, and the real biggie and the reason you have the ground under your feet: Manifest Destiny.

-- Why Rome wasn't built in a day: Fascinating blow-by-blow description of how the Romans conquered the world.
-- Accurate depictions of life in ancient Rome -- What was it like to be a gladiator? A plebe? A slave? A woman?
-- An in-depth look at Roman society, politics, and architecture -- and why its timeless influence still effects us even today.
-- A close-up view of the famous (and infamous) leaders of the Roman Empire: Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasian, Titus, Domitian, and -- of course -- Caesar.
-- A look at Roman influence around the world -- from Egypt to the UK to Romania to Syria.
