Summary
The glories of Ancient Rome are explored in this Emmy Award-winning animated and live-action video. Roman City recounts life in Verbonia, a fictional city in Gaul. A well-planned town with all modern conveniences, Verbonia is threatened by conflict between conquerors and conquered. Macaulay also visits Pompeii, Herculaneum, Ostia, Nimes, Orange, and Rome, to view actual Roman architecture and engineering greatness
