Ancient Rome -An Interactive Video

Roman_empire_2For centuries they ruled with unlimited, absolute power. If you liked HBO's Rome series, you'll love this interactive video-enhanced website on Imperial Rome, including Emperors, Religion, Daily Life, and Power presented by the Houston Museum of Natural History.

Edward Gibbon, author of The Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire wrote: "The military force was a blind and irresistible instrument of oppression; and the corruption of Roman manners would always supply flatterers eager to applaud, and ministers prepared to serve, the fear or the avarice, the lust or the cruelty, of their masters."
