Come and Discover:
From a flood plain of the River Tiber to the major public place of ancient Rome, the Forum formed the hub of judicial, political and public business. In its heyday the Roman Forum was the centre of day to day activity. It was the venue for public speeches, the site of triumphal processions, the nexus of commercial activity, the seat of Republican government, the nerve centre of the judiciary and even, for a time, the locus for gladiatorial contests. It was decorated with monuments of Rome's heroes and edified with shrines and temples of Rome's gods.
The lecture will look at the many changes that this small valley, between the Capitol and Palatine Hills, underwent over the centuries, and talk about the main monuments that were built in the area pinpointing their historical and cultural importance for the Ancient Romans.
The lecture lasts 1 hour with 20 minutes of Q&A at the end!
