Ancient Rome: the city, society and infrastructure
This course describes ancient Rome as the Romans saw it - not as stone ruins, but as a vibrant, living city. We see how the people of the largest metropolis on the planet in AD 200 were fed, governed and entertained; who the ancient Romans were and how they lived.
Aims of the course:
Course content overview:
The course will ask participants to define a city, and identify its key components. They will look at aspects of Roman urbanism such as housing, roads and water supply, and who lived in the ancient city and why. It will also examine how such people organized their society, and how they worked, ate and played.
Finally participants will be challenged to design an ancient city for themselves - as indeed Roman city planners often did from scratch at a new site.
