    Ancient Rome was originally an Italic settlement dating from the 8th century BC that grew into the city of Rome and which subsequently gave its name to the empire over which it ruled and to the widespread civilisation the empire developed. The Roman empire expanded to become one of the largest empires in the ancient world, though still ruled from the city, with an estimated 50 to 90 million inhabitants and covering 5.0 million square kilometres at its height in AD 117.
    Ancient Roman civilisation has contributed to modern government, law, politics, engineering, art, literature, architecture, technology, warfare, religion, language and society. Rome professionalised and expanded its military and created a system of government called res publica, the inspiration for modern republics such as the United States and France. It achieved impressive technological and architectural feats, such as the construction of an extensive system of aqueducts and roads, as well as the construction of large monuments, palaces, and public facilities.
    By the end of the Republic (27 BC), Rome had conquered the lands around the Mediterranean and beyond: its domain extended from the Atlantic to Arabia and from the mouth of the Rhine to North Africa. The Roman Empire emerged with the end of the Republic and the dictatorship of Augustus Caesar. 721 years of Roman-Persian Wars started in 92 BC with their first war against Parthia. It would become the longest conflict in human history, and have major lasting effects and consequences for both empires. Under Trajan, the Empire reached its territorial peak. Republican mores and traditions started to decline during the imperial period, with civil wars becoming a prelude common to the rise of a new emperor.

  • The Fall of Rome Explained In 13 Minutes

FREE trial to The Great Courses Plus: | The Roman empire, towards the end of its lifetime, could not stop the relentless barbarian attacks that chipped away at its borders until, by the time of Romulus, there was little more than Italy left. While the Eastern half of the empire, known as the Byzantine Empire, survived until 1453, the Western Roman Empire crumbled in the 5th century, never to be seen again.

  • How the Romans Conquered Greek Beliefs And Adapted Them | Lost Gods | Parable

    24:24

    In the 8th century BC, when the Greek city-states were coming to power, a group of tribes occupied the hills above the Tiber in Italy. They were farmers, and their gods were the Numan, faceless and formless spirits manifested in the powers of nature and the cycles of the seasons. But, as they grew into an empire that stretched from the Atlantic to the Dead Sea their gods would take on different forms. By the 2nd century AD, 85 thousand kilometres of paved roads carried their laws, currency, legions and beliefs to over four hundred nations. Their art, architecture and engineering genius still generates wonder today. It was Horus, one of their most famous poets who urged them carpe diem. And in their day, they would seize the territories, treasuries and gods of other civilisations. They were the Romans.

    From a time before time was first measured, humankind has pondered the question of God. As the image of that god formed in their mind, they fashioned it in wood, paint and stone and housed it in holy places. The ancient world was populated with gods beyond counting. Today, just one God dominates the world of believers. Where have the old gods gone? Our quest is to peel away the layers of time to examine the civilizations that brought the gods to power and honoured them with art and architecture and to discover the ultimate fate of the Lost Gods.

  • Did Ancient Rome Meet China? - What did they know?

    12:30

    In this educational documentary we explore Roman and Chinese relations. Did ancient Rome meet China? What did they know? To answer these questions we provide a recap of east-west trade which resulted in the flourishing of the silk road and encouraged further transfer of goods and information across the world.

    The history documentary starts by briefly recapping the Persian Empire and its role in trade between the east and the west. Later the conquests of Alexander the Great further accelerated this mixing. In his wake, the successor kingdoms would continue the trend. This is epitomized by the Greco-Bactrian kingdom which reportedly stretched out into central Asia, making contact with China for the first time.

    When the Han dynasty of ancient China rose to power, they ended up expanding out into the Tarim Basin of central asia. From here they would send multiple delegations to explore the west. Most of their missions dealt with the Persian Empire but a few missions were sent to reach distant Da Qin or the Roman Empire. Over the years we hear of numerous delegations being exchanged between ancient Rome and China but it is never clear whether these are official diplomatic missions or simply private trade missions. Later the Han would fall into decline while the Roman Empire would be reduced to the far smaller Byzantine Empire. Trade would still continue but the window for ancient Rome and China to interact officially closed.

    We then conclude the video by asking to what extent did Rome and China know each other. We do so by referring to primary source material from Romans like Pliny the Elder or Chinese sources like Yu Huan.

    I hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for more and be sure to check out this video from Voices of the Past on the Chinese account of ancient Rome:

  • The Great Illyrian Revolt - Romes Forgotten War DOCUMENTARY

    14:59

    A history documentary on the Great Illyrian Revolt against Rome. Brave the freezing darkness of Conqueror’s Blade Season VI with a FREE 7-day Premium Account! =

    In this documentary we explore one of the unsung wars of Roman history which gets lost in the shadows of more famed conflicts like the Punic Wars, the Gallic Wars, the Civil Wars, the Parthian Wars, and more. Yet the Great Illyrian Uprising should not be forgotten as it was an extremely consequential event of the era. The war featured nearly 1 million rebels, saw the deployment of more legions than anytime since the civil wars, threatened Rome itself, and ultimately sowed the seeds for the disastrous Ambush of the Teutoburg Forest at the hands of the traitor Arminius.

    Stay tuned for more full documentaries on Roman wars and other fascinating topics revolving around the Battle of Teutoburg. As you can imagine, I've been heavily inspired by the Netflix show Barbarians and can't wait to cover more of the history they merely touched on. Enjoy and see you in the next one.

  • Ancient War Monuments of the Greeks and Romans DOCUMENTARY

    10:02

    The first 100 people to go to are going to get unlimited access for 1 week to try it out. You’ll also get 25% off if you want the full membership.

    In this history documentary we seek to uncover where trophies come from. Our discussion begins with an analysis of warfare in Bronze Age Greece. Here soldiers would celebrate their victories over opponents by stripping them of their gear and making a dedication to a god. This practice is captured in the works of Homer. For example in the Iliad we see Odysseus slay Delon and over his weapons and armor to the goddess Athena. However as the Bronze Age turned to the Classical Period we see the rise of the polis and hoplite warfare. This made battle more about the effort of the group rather than the individual.

    Now victories would be celebrated at the point where one side managed to prevail over the other. This was physically marked at the location where battle was said to have turned. It is from the greek work trope, to turn that we get the name for this victory monument, the tropaion.

    We next talk about how the Tropaion grew in prominence throughout the classical period, first appearing during the Greco Persian wars when these trophies were erected for famous battles like Marathon, Salamis, and Plataea. By the time of the Peloponnesian War the Tropaion had become quite common and appears 41 times in the account of Themistocles. We talk at length about the different types of trophies and what they signified. There were all sorts of ritualized aspects of the Tropaion such as the idea that they could not be removed and that one must not erect permanent versions between fellow Greeks. This taboo was famously broken by the Theban Army at the Battle of Leuctra after their defeat of the Spartan Army. Finally we talk about how the Roman army further developed the idea of the war monument.

  • How Did Rome Maintain Peace in the Provinces? DOCUMENTARY

    19:45

    A history documentary on how the Roman Empire achieved the Pax Romana across the provinces. Get Surfshark VPN at and enter promo code INVICTA for 85% off and 3 extra months for free!

    In this history documentary on law and order in ancient Rome we look specifically at peace in the provinces. To lay the groundwork for this discussion we first cover the history of the Roman provinces themselves starting with the first one in Sicilia following the First Punic War. We discuss how these worked in the Roman Republic and later evolved under the Empire with a split between what was an imperial vs a senatorial province.

    Next we turn our attention to the Roman governors who ruled these provinces over the years and their chief duties of maintaining public order, dispensing justice, and collecting taxes. Public order largely had to do with the deployment of military forces in the form of the Roman legions, auxiliaries, garrisons, and militias to combat internal and external threats. The response to the Great Jewish Revolt and the ultimate siege of Jerusalem is one such extreme example. For the discussion of Roman law we talk about the idea of citizenship and rights with a case study by looking at the trial of jesus.

    Stay tuned for more How They Did It episodes on daily life in the past and more episodes specifically on Law and Order in Ancient Rome.

  • Battle of Yarmouk 636 DOCUMENTARY

    12:39

    In our previous video, we covered the Byzantine – Sasanian War of 602–628. As that conflict and Initial Muslim Invasion are connected, we decided to make the video on the Battle of Yarmouk that took place in 636 between Byzantine Empire (Vahan) and Rashidun Caliphate (Khalid ibn Al Walid). Although it was the Byzantine - Sasanian War that allowed Islamic Invasion to happen, the battle of Yarmouk was decisive for Roman attempts to defend, and its results are still felt in the region.

    ???? Caesar's Civil War (49–45 BC), was one of the last politico-military conflicts in the Roman Republic before the establishment of the Roman Empire. The war was a four-year-long politico-military struggle, fought in Italy, Illyria, Greece, Egypt, Africa, and Hispania. In a series of battles over the years, Caesar defeated his enemies (the Optimates) and became Dictator for life. The changes to Roman government eliminated the political traditions of the Roman Republic (509–27 BC) and led to the Roman Empire (27 BC–AD 476).

  • ROMANS in Spain

    6:53



    The conquest of the Iberian peninsula by Rome lasted two centuries from 218 B.C. to 19 A.D. The
    Romans gave the peninsula its name, Hispania, and carried out the conquest for three main reasons:
    To have control of the western Mediterranean, which they were competing for with
    Carthage.
    To take advantage of the wealth that the mines generated, like gold and silver, and also
    stock up on wine and oil.
    But also with a geographical goal to conquer the whole of Europe, reaching the cape of
    Finisterre (‘the end of land’ in Latin) which was the most western point of the know
    world at that time.
    The conquest starts with the landing of Publio and Cneo Escipion in Emporion, nowadays Ampurias in
    Gerona, during the Second Punic War; on the side of the Carthaginians, Amilcar Barca, Asdrúbal and
    finally Hannibal succeeded each other as leader.
    Hannibal left Cartago Nova, nowadays Cartagena, crossed the Pyrenees and the Alps with his army,
    which included elephants, and arrived at the gates of Rome.
    After the Roman victory at the battle of Ilipa, near Alcalá del Rio in Sevilla, the Carthaginians were
    forced to abandon the peninsula and finally, at the battle of Zama in Africa, they were completely beaten
    by Publio Cornelio Escipion, The African.
    The Romans advanced their conquest through a military unit known as the Roman Legion, which fought
    not only on flat terrain but also in the mountains. They were made up of 6,000 men and 300 riders and
    each unit had their own name and number, like, for example, the Legio Seventh Gemina, originally from
    the city of León, whose name came from Legio.
    However, during their advance through the Iberian Peninsula, the Romans met fierce resistance from the
    tribes.
    Indíbil and Mandonio (206 B. C.) warlords from the Iberian tribes of the Ilergetes and
    Ausetanos, fought in the Pyrenees and the Valley of the Ebro against the Romans,
    although eventually they were executed for repeated treason against Rome.
    In the south east of the Iberian Peninsula the Romans had to fight against the Portuguese warlord
    Viriato, who used guerrilla warfare to resist all the Roman armies sent to beat him for seven years.
    In the end he reached a peace treaty with Rome, but he was assassinated by three of his lieutenants.
    The story goes that when these three went to collect their reward, the Roman Consul Escipión
    Emiliano ordered them to be executed for treachery, saying, “Rome does not reward traitors”.
    Another example was the Celtiberian resistance in the city of Numancia, on the
    outskirts of what is now Soria. In the year 133 B.C. the General Escipión Emiliano laid
    siege to the city for fifteen months with 60,000 soldiers against 2,500 Numancians. Faced with
    defeat, the majority of the people inside the city chose to commit suicide rather than become Roman
    slaves.
    The Sertorian Wars, which took place in Hispania between the years 82 B.C. and 72 B.C. and pitted the
    Roman General Quintus Sertorius against Pompey the Great, also helped in the Romanization of the

    Iberian Peninsular, with Iberian tribes fighting on both sides.
    Julius Cesar’s last battle was Munda, near Jaen, which he won and was then assassinated in Rome a few
    months later, leading to the period known as the Roman Empire.
    The presence of the Romans in the Iberian Peninsula lasted six centuries, from the second century B.C. to
    the start of the fifth century A.D., when the Visigoths arrived. The Romanization was founded on four
    main principles:-
    The language: Latin replaced the indigenous languages (Iberian, Celt). It is estimated
    that approximately 70% of the words in the Spanish language come from Latin.
    The polystheistic religion (many Gods) was replaced by Christianity which became th
    official religion of the Roman Empire at the end of the fourth century with Emperor Theodosius.
    Roman law which introduced laws and the concept of the State and also the
    organization of the land in Hispania which in the time of Emperor Octavio Augusto (27 B. C.) was
    divided in three provinces, Betica, Tarraconense and Lusitania.
    Urban civilization: the Romans created an important network of roadways that joined
    cities up, such as Cadiz, Cartagena, Córdoba, León, Mérida, Sevilla and Zaragoza. All these cities
    have a similar pattern, made up of a main road called Cardo (North to South) and also the
    Decumeno (East to West). Both converge at the Forum, the heart of the city, where the government
    buildings, temples, baths and markets were to be found.
    Great feats of engineering and architecture were carried out, some of the most impressive being:
    The Walls of Lugo
    The Aqueduct at Segovia
    The Alcantara Bridge
    The Amphitheatre at Mérida
    Hispania was one of the most Romanized provinces of the Empire. In the third century A.D. Roman
    citizenship was granted to all the free inhabitants of Hispania.
    A number of important figures in the history of Rome were born in Hispania, for example the Emperors

  • Carrhae 53 BC - Roman–Parthian War DOCUMENTARY

    20:40

    Previously we have made an animated historical documentary on the battle of Nisibis between the Roman and the Parthian empires. But that battle was far from first - two empires started fighting immediately after their borders touched and that war led to the iconic battle of Carrhae in 53 BC, during which the Romans of the triumvir Marcus Crassus fought against the Parthians of Surena.

    During the Vandalic War, the best general of Emperor Justinian - Belisarius reconquered the province of Africa from the Vandals of Gelimer at the battles of Ad Decimum and Tricamarum. The province was back under the imperial control, but it was just the beginning, as taking Italy and Rome from the Ostrogoths was the real goal. Belisarius entered Rome with ease but had to defend it against the king Vitiges in 537-538. The Gothic War was just starting...

  • Why Does Rome Conquer the Classical World?

    11:07

    Why does the Roman Republic conquer the entire Mediterranean (a feat that no other power has ever managed to accomplish)?

    The explanations for this are legion, with generations of historians spilling a great deal of ink over the problem. An initial explanation of the unification of the Mediterranean is that the Roman Republic conquered the Classical city states in the region in order to protect them from non-Classical entities such as Carthage and Persia.

    But, this isn't an adequate explanation, since Rome eventually consolidated an empire that stretched from the Sahara to Britain. All of the states of the Classical World eventually became incorporated into the Roman Empire: Sparta, Athens, Pergamum, Macedon, the list goes on. Eventually the expansion proved incompatible with democracy, and the rise of Sulla, Pompey, and Julius Caesar was the result. The civil wars unleashed by Sulla after his march on rome, and by Caesar after his gallic wars eventually led to the destruction of the Roman Republic and the foundation, under Caesar's heir Octavian (later to be the Emperor Augustus), of the Roman Empire

    In this video I lay out the main ideas of historians, but, it's up to you decide if their theories are valid ones!

  • Greece vs Rome, with Boris Johnson and Mary Beard

    1:35:57

    Want to join the debate? Check out the Intelligence Squared website to hear about future live events and podcasts:
    __________________________

    Filmed at Central Hall Westminster on 19th November 2015.

    On November 19th Intelligence Squared hosted the ultimate clash of civilisations: Greece vs Rome. It was also the ultimate clash of intellectual titans. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London and ardent classicist, made the case for Greece; while Mary Beard, Professor of Classics at Cambridge and redoubtable media star, championed Rome.

    As Boris argued, the Greeks got there first: in literature, history, art and philosophy. The Iliad and the Odyssey are the earliest surviving epic poems, the foundations on which European literature was built. The Greek myths – the tales of Oedipus, Heracles and Persephone, to name but a few – contain the archetypal plot elements of hubris and nemesis on which even Hollywood films depend today.

    It was in ancient Athens that the birth of democracy took place under the leadership of the great statesman Pericles. And in that political climate with its love of freedom and competition, and passion for argument, the great cultural flourishing of classical Athens occurred: the tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides; the philosophical writings of Plato and Aristotle; and the marble and stone wonders of the Parthenon. Nothing before or since has matched that explosion of talent in a slice of Mediterranean coast smaller than Gloucestershire, with a population the size of Bristol’s.

    But as Mary Beard reminded us, Greece eventually lost out to Rome. Little Athens, with its loose-knit, short-lived empire, had nothing to rival Rome’s scale. From Hadrian’s Wall to north Africa, from Spain’s Atlantic coast to Babylon, the Romans stamped a permanent legacy on architecture, language, religion and politics.
    Although nothing can detract from the brilliance of Greek literature, the great Roman writers have an immediacy unmatched by any other ancient culture. Virgil’s epic poem the Aeneid, while invoking Homer, conveys an ambiguity towards war that appeals to modern sensibilities; Catullus’s taut analysis of his own complex emotions and the scatological insults he hurls at his rivals make him seem like the kind of clever and amusing friend we all wish we had. These poets reach out to us with voices that make the intervening 2,000 years vanish.

    While Athens declined into a forgotten backwater, Rome became the eternal city, home to the greatest classical buildings on earth – the Colosseum, the Pantheon and Trajan’s column. It is thanks to a Roman emperor, Constantine, that Christianity became both the presiding European religion and the force that shaped the Renaissance. Europe is still built in Rome’s image, despite the fall of the Roman Empire.

    Some say that if Mary Beard had been in charge, the Roman Empire would never have fallen. Others say Boris is soon to be the Pericles of Downing Street. Who gets your vote?

    Ancient Rome, both from the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire developed aspects of technology, architecture, government, art, law, military and religious organizations, and language and leisure activities that are still utilized in the modern-day. The legacy of Ancient Rome is significant, and still a huge part of the daily lives of people all around the world.

  • The Roman Empire: Rise and Fall, A Short Introduction

    8:11

    Learn all about the Roman Empire! This short introduction of the Roman Empire discusses how the Empire started, some of the key events and emperors, and how the Roman Empire fell.

    The Roman Empire was the largest empire the ancient world had ever seen. At its height, it covered all the lands around the Mediterranean Sea and parts of northern Europe, Africa, and the Near East. It lasted over a thousand years, and has left a legacy that will not be forgotten.

    Before the Roman Empire, there was the Roman Republic. It was in the year 27 BCE when Octavian, the nephew of Julius Caesar, became the first emperor of #Rome and adopted the title Augustus Caesar. It was under the Emperor Trajan who ruled between 98-117 CE when the Roman Empire truly began to reach its height and was at its greatest geographic extent and political power during the reign of Hadrian between 117-121 CE.

    The #Roman #Empire ended in the West in around 476 CE, and ended in the east around 1453 CE with the death of #Constantine XI.

  • Roman Empire - The Last Romans - Full HD Documentary

    51:46

    At the beginning of the 5th century, Imperial Rome is dying out but Greco-Roman civilization lives on. In the East, many cities will continue to experience flourishing prosperity for almost four centuries.

    One city tells the story of this moment of history known as Late Antiquity. It's name is Sagalassos, in Turkey. And therein lies a great paradox of history: when Sagalassos disappears, so too will the Last Romans.
