Dip into the fascinating universe of Ancient Rome and learn how the empire rose to become the most powerful force of the old world.
Ancient Rome is known as the greatest empire of its time. Spreading over three continents and boasting the most developed civilization of the age, it absorbed influences from every nation it came into contact with and created a truly global force. Its history is rich with events, conflict, achievements, and some truly fascinating facts. Today, you don't need to go through a pile of books to learn more about it. Apps are enough to get you started. You can figure out plenty this way. What was the role of a senator? Who was the goddess of love? When did the empire fall? That's just the beginning of getting smarter and figuring things out on the go.
Perhaps the most interesting feature of the Roman Republic as well as the Empire is architecture. The wealth of houses, temples, and monuments that have survived to this day shows not only the skill but also the artistic merit of the builders of old. Visiting the most attractive locations of the ancient world will help you understand why. Since travel can be quite costly, a virtual tour will prove to be an excellent alternative. It will allow you to explore the world on a budget and still get to see quite a bit from the comfort of your own home.
Last but not least, we should also cover Roman mythology. It is no secret that the vast empire borrowed a good deal of its religious beliefs from Greek civilization as well as bits and pieces from Egypt and Mesopotamia. The gods and heroes simply acquired new names - Aphrodite became Venus, Zeus Jupiter, while Isis kept her old Egyptian moniker. However, there were some additions unique to the Roman world, including the figures of Janus and Vesta. Learning all about them is a great way to keep your mind sharp. After you've acquired a strong foundation, you can even test your knowledge with the Mythology Quiz and see how many stories you recognize.
