Between the 8th century BC and the 15th century AD, the Roman civilization thrived as one of the most powerful, enlightened and long-lasting empires in the world.

The Romans inspiring developments in governance, art, science, technology and social structure were hugely advanced for their time and helped to form the basis of the civilized world we inhabit today. Extraordinary examples of Roman architectural engineering survive in the 21st century all over the Western world. With their monumental influence on almost every aspect of our lives, the classic question “What have the Romans ever done for us?” has an almost endless number of answers!
