NOTES: The Rise of Rome (30:00) How did a small city in Italy build an empire that shaped the West? Rome's army and its military history defined the city that conquered Macedonia, Greece, and Egypt, and the society's successes transformed Rome and its citizens. Featured are villas, aqueducts, and a portrait bust of Scipio Africanus. The Roman Empire (30:00) Rome's civil engineering was as important to the empire's success as its weapons. A close examination of Trajan's Column, the Arch of Septimius Severus, and the Arch of Constantine reveals important details of Roman history. Augustus and the Pax Romana are also discussed.
