The objective of this course is to provide an overview of the culture of ancient Rome beginning about 1000 BCE and ending with the so-called "Fall of Rome". We will look at some of the key people who played a role in Rome, from the time of the kings through the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. We will also focus on the city of Rome itself, as well as Rome's expansion through Italy, the Mediterranean, and beyond.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ROMAN ART AND ARCHAEOLOGY
Great course! It has awesome content and the videos are engaging and informative. Would definitely recommend for anyone who enjoys history.
I learned a lot about Ancient Rome. The instructor was interesting and down to earth, and I really appreciated that he spelled out unfamiliar terms. I especially liked Lana, the canine assistant.
I loved this class but the only reason I have to give it four stars is the over amount of peer review assignments that are extensive. Otherwise it's great but be prepared to work :)
It's an amazing course with a lot of details and snippets of history. Great learning, especially if you can correlate the facts given to various other threads of historical importance.
