Two thousand years ago, at the dawn of the first century, the world was ruled by Rome.

From England to Africa, and from Syria to Spain, one in every four people on earth lived and died under Roman law.

Now you can enjoy the wonder of ancient Rome in your own home. Using the experiences, memories and writings of the people who lived through this remarkable age, “The Roman Empire in the First Century AD” brings to life the greatest empire the world has ever known.

Led by two dynasties of some of history’s most colorful characters – leaders and tyrants that to this day remain household names – “The Roman Empire in the First Century AD” is a roller-coaster ride of murder and revenge, envy and pride, and fear and greed.

The program uses diaries, poems, private letters and public records to tell the stories of emperors and slaves, poets and plebeians who built the most sophisticated society the world had ever seen.
