Why take this online tour?

Roma Caput Mundi is a Latin phrase meaning, "Rome Capital of the World". This simple phrase well-defined the Roman Empire from the years between the 2nd century BC until the latter half of the 5th century. With over 500 years of pristine power and influence, Rome and its territories built an extent of rule both sovereignly and geographically, unrivaled. The factors that led to its power - a bevy of “Good Emperors”, a calculated, forceful army and amalgamation plan were little match for the introduction of conflict and invasion leading to its eventual decline and bound obliteration.

March back in time to witness demise of the greatest Empire on Earth

Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus - known simply as the Emperor Trajan brought the Roman Empire to its most powerful extent - reaching across the land and sea into Northern Africa, up into the far reaches of Britannia, and over into the Middle East. Locally, his ambitious building plan transformed an area of Rome still heavily visited today - the main avenue leading to the Roman Forum and Colosseum.

Imperator Caesar Nerva Traianus Divi Nervae filius Augustus - known simply as the Emperor Trajan brought the Roman Empire to its most powerful extent - reaching across the land and sea into Northern Africa, up into the far reaches of Britannia, and over into the Middle East.

Via dei Fori Imperiali is flanked by Trajan’s Forum, his market complex, and an imposing column detailing his triumphs. These seemingly minute artifacts play a larger role in modern history - each stand today as a testament of the influential elements the Empire had on our world even after its drastic fall from grace. On this live online tour, join our expert historian as they weave their passion and profession together to mark the fall of the Roman Empire and the lasting influence it had on our modern world.

On this powerful online tour from home, march back in time with an expert guide from their home at the center of Caput Mundi - the city of Rome, whose ability to paint a portrait of the ancient world brings new understanding to an immense subject.

The period of peace and prosperity from the years 96 to 180 AD is coined the term of the Five Good Emperors - this era supplies a jumping off point for this online tour. Over the course of an hour, begin to peel back the layers of weakness established during this period - and continue from this foundation to reach the conclusion in 476 AD that befell upon the once majestic Empire.

Journey back in time to the glory days of the Ancients, hearing why the rise of Christianity played a feature role in the fall, and why some historians argue climate change also had a role to play, leading to the obvious but no less fascinating invasion of the Germanic Barbarians and a plague that left the Empire almost near empty.
