This process started 2700 years ago and continued for over a millennium. Through the ups and downs of all these years, buildings were destroyed and replaced, turning the forum into a temporally eclectic museum, where artefacts from prehistory are found beside Renaissance palaces. Join writer and historian Michael Anderson in imagining the passage of time here, where Caesar was assassinated and Cicero made speeches that echo through to the present. He'll connect you to the successes and failures of Rome, which is also a way of connecting with the with the civilizations that have inherited its culture.
