Video: Watch this crash course on Ancient Rome

ANCIENT,ROME

Arzamas | YouTube

Zelda Caldwell - published on 08/13/18

A short, humorous, animated history of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire

This 20-minute video from Arzamas surveys 12 centuries of Roman history, from the city’s beginnings as a tiny settlement along the River Tiber to its position as the center of a great world empire and then a former great world empire.

Cleverly and humorously animated, the video is a crash course in everything you learned about Ancient Rome and may have forgotten.
