The ancient monuments of Rome stand as moving reminders of one of the most powerful empires the world has ever seen. Every year, millions of people visit the Forum, Coliseum and other legendary sites in search of a glimpse into the past.
Explore what these imperial monuments symbolized and uncover the secrets of the society that built and sustained them with this in-depth examination of Rome's legendary ruins.
Who were the egomaniacal men responsible for these imposing structures? What drove them to build bigger and better monument regardless of cost?
There were arenas where no form of torture was deemed too cruel, places of worship where gods were honored with shocking ritualistic sacrifices, and pleasure palaces where wanton sexual depravity was not only accepted but encouraged.
ROME'S ETERNAL WONDERS exposes the empire that dominated the Western world for thousands of years.
