Summary
There are many reasons to study ancient Rome. Rome's span was vast, its influence is indelible, and the story is riveting. This course examines how a small village of shepherds and farmers rose to tower over the civilized world, unified in politics and law, for almost 700 years. Rome changed hugely in many spheres over the course of its 1,500-year history, so the principal focus is on the years from 200 B.C.E. to 200 A.D., when Roman power was at its height
