The TimeTraveler‎ > ‎

Ancient Rome

What was it like to live in Rome at the height of the Empire? The TimeTraveler brings to life a day in the Eternal City almost two thousand years ago: its homes and shopping, food and clothing, family and social customs. Compare Roman daily life with the present day: what has been lost... changed... what has endured through time? Did everybody wear the toga? Would the systems that made Rome great work today? Would you rather have been a citizen or slave? Don't answer until you know more about life in the capital city!
The TimeTraveler will guide you through a day in ancient Rome from dawn to dark, properly dressed and bearing a trunk of real and reproduction artifacts. From breakfast to the Baths and beyond, students will discover the good, the bad, and the ugly in ancient Rome, where the movies get it wrong, and how much our civilization owes to those times.
