The Roman Empire, an enduring empire in human history lasted for many centuries due to their great innovations, including the most important, roads and aqueducts.
The longest Empire of human history lasted for many centuries due to their great innovations, including the most important, roads and aqueducts. Roads allowed their army to conquer and manage far away regions. Through the perfection of the round arch, Romans were able to build bridges and aqueducts to provide running water, significantly improving their every day life.
We will discover how Romans travelled the Empire and how the use of running water improved their lifestyle and those of the conquered regions. Find out how the famous town of Bath recreated the Roman lifestyle in the faraway regions of the Empire.
Learn about the theatres and free entertainments provided in every city by the emperors, and Triumphal Arches, one of the most influential and distinctive types of architecture associated with ancient Rome. These were used to commemorate victorious generals or significant public events.
