A Fresh Face on the Height of Rome

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

In this first video of a four part historical retrospective on Rome in the first century, Rome rises under Caesar Augustus‘ compassion and violence. This miniseries is part of PBS‘s Empires series, a program that brings life and vivid imagining capabilities to periods of time that would otherwise seem much farther away. All four parts of this series provide a wide range of historical data in a format that keeps it interesting for the viewer.

Topics covered in the other Empires miniseries include The Kingdom of David, The Medici, Ancient Japan, and Martin Luther.
