A Guided Tour of Ancient Rome
Tuesdays, beginning May 21st, 6:30-7:30pm
Ancient Rome was the capital city of the great Roman Empire, which included large portions of the three continents of Europe, Asia, and Africa. The unimaginable wealth of the empire was employed to construct the most magnificent and robust city the world has ever seen. The remains of the ancient city survive today among the medieval, renaissance and modern structures that make up the city of Rome today, which is aptly know as the “Eternal City.” Dr. Cleve takes the audience on a guided tour of the most important surviving remains of ancient Rome, illustrated with images collected by him during 23 visits to Rome and his 33 year career as adjunct professor of ancient history at the California State University, Northridge. Questions and discussion by the audience are welcome.
This presentation should be of interest to anyone planning a trip or vacation in Italy, as well as those interested in comparing the reality of ancient Roman history and culture with the exaggeration of the Hollywood and TV media.
