The Roman Empire is an essential and unique resource for teaching and learning about the issues and events that characterise the history of the Roman peoples and their world. It never lets go of the period's story, providing innovative and exciting opportunities to examine the Big Picture and Investigate particular topics. Did you know that archaeologists have found ancient huts on the Palatine Hill in Rome, right where legends claim Romulus founded the city; the government paid for free corn to be given to all citizens in Rome to make bread; or that the fine sand used on the floor of the Colosseum to soak up the blood of gladiators came from Egypt?
