What's Inside?

Published 1st September 2022

 

The year is 14 CE. Augustus, the first leader of the Roman Empire lies on his deathbed. He has managed to end years of civil war and usher in a new era. While Ancient Rome has existed for over 700 years before him, thanks to his hard work, it will be around, in some form or another, for over 1,000 years more. Ancient Rome - kingdom, republic and empire - has inspired countries, laws, inventions and more ever since its fall.

Now we take a look back at this legendary civilisation, its mythical founding and what it has done for us. Walk the aqueducts, take a front seat at the Colosseum and head to the front lines to truly understand what made the Romans tick. But what about the people themselves? Meet ten of Ancient Rome’s most despicable characters, join about the emperor who brought Christianity to the pagan empire, and find out why the last Roman king was overthrown in a bloody coup. Ancient Rome certainly wasn’t for the faint-hearted.
