A history of Ancient Rome.
In fewer than 500 years, the Roman Republic grew from a small village on the Tiber to the mightiest empire in the world. This colorful, four-part chronology traces Roman history from Romulus to the fall of the Republic, with a look at such figures as Julius Caesar, Pompey, Mark Antony, and Augustus.

From the Roman Empire to the Renaissance.
Under the rule of Augustus Caesar, the Roman Empire was a strong and efficient power. Marble monuments and beautiful prose proclaimed the glory of imperial Rome. The peaceful times, however, would not last. Seven comprehensive stories chronicle the discord and the eventual destruction of the Roman Empire.

The name "Rome" today conjures up images of a cosmopolitan city in Italy. But almost 3,000 years ago, Rome was more than just a city... it was the center of Western Civilization. The Thomas S. Klise Company CD-ROM program, The Road to Ancient Rome, uses colorful and captivating artwork- combined with a strong and interesting narrative- to show life in Rome through the eyes of the ancient Romans. Users can learn about the emperors and politics, art and architecture, philosophy, and popular culture of this fascinating land. The program also features ancillary activities: anagrams, puzzles, educational games, and projects, all related to the subject of Ancient Rome.
