Ancient Rome

Totally yoinked from Brad Torgersen's FaceBook feed.

Rome Reborn 2.2: A Tour of Ancient Rome in 320 CE from Bernard Frischer on Vimeo.

One of the the things I love about this video is how it shows how many architectural marvels there were in Rome during the height of the imperial period. In a time in which most human beings lived in hunter-gather bands or small agricultural villages, a city like this must have been a literally awe-inspiring sight.
