Join television host and celebrated archaeologist Darius Arya as he takes you right to the center of the Ancient Roman world — directly from his home in downtown Rome. You will hear stories of political intrigue, maniacal emperors, mysterious pagan religions, and more than a few murder plots. This fun and educational experience will introduce you to the might and magic of the Roman Empire and is accessible to all ages; perfect if you’re looking for a beginner’s introduction or simply a refresher — everyone is welcome!

Darius will lead three separate tours over three weeks, coinciding with three critical eras of Ancient Rome:

  • Friday, May 8th, 12pm ET: Founding Myths, The Kingdom of Rome, the Republic
  • Friday, May 15th, 12pm ET: The Rise of the Emperors and Imperial Rome
  • Friday, May 22nd, 12pm ET: Rome’s Decline and Fall, and Eternal Rome

Founding Myths, The Kingdom of Rome, the Republic

In this first tour, Darius will cover the foundational myths including Romulus, Remus and the She-Wolf, the archaeology of early Rome, the formation of the Republic, Rome’s many ‘layers,’ and the rise of the strongmen. This period lasted over 700 years so it will be an action-packed event!

The Rise of the Emperors and Imperial Rome

For the second installment, Darius will guide you through the Rome of Emperor Augustus (Octavian), Emperor Trajan and the expanding empire, incredible feats of engineering, and the difficulties of managing an expanding metropolis. Bring Darius your questions about your favorite emperors.

Rome’s Decline and Fall, and Eternal Rome

After centuries of growth, expansion and prosperity, Rome begins to crack at the seams. On the third installment of Darius’ Spotlight Series, he’ll take you through the times of crisis, signalling the end of the empire. You’ll learn where and how the Romans attempted to start anew, the obstacles they faced, barbarian invasions, and of course, the rediscovery of Ancient Rome and the famed excavations that brought its history to light.

We recommend that you join all three in order to maximize this special opportunity! Please come with your questions ready, too, as Darius will spend 15 minutes of every hour making sure to cover the topic that most interests you.
