Date 06.26.2020

Learn about the rise of the Roman Empire from Antonella Gleason.  During this free one-hour virtual seminar you will learn how a small town of herdsmen and traders, who settled on the banks of the Tiber River, eventually built one of the most expansive empires in history! How was the Mediterranean Sea transformed into the “Mare Nostrum,” (Latin for “our sea”) by the Romans? Beginning from the founding of Rome in 753 BC, this seminar will explore Rome’s wars of expansion from its monarchical years to the Roman Republic.
