Bill Cumiford (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Roman Empire, extending from its origins in central Italy, spread throughout Europe to dominate western civilization for nearly half a millennium. Rome drew its inspiration from the ancient heart of the city of Rome and later extended the imperial presence to the outer reaches of Gaul, Germany, and Britain. That presence is seen today in the ruins and artifacts reflecting ancient Rome’s tremendous power and influence. Participants in this course will visit the core of this great civilization in Italy and will later survey Roman sites in Britain. In Italy we will be conducting excursions to the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill, the Appian Way and the Catacombs, Pompeii and Florence. In Britain participants will visit the Roman excavations and museums at Bath and ancient Roman settlements and sites in London, York, Colchester and St. Albans.
