Ancient Rome Live

Ancient Rome Live is our world-class, free-to-access online learning platform that combines video, text, photo, and audio to offer an unparalleled resource for learning about Ancient Rome’s history.

It has been created for students, teachers, travelers and history lovers that presents Rome, its urban development, its monuments, the cities of its vast empire and many special topics. Ancient Rome Live covers more than 3000 years of Rome’s history, spanning from its origins right through to the present day.

Live Online Lectures

Since early 2020 we have been proud to have offered, via Zoom, twice-weekly free-to-access live lectures.

Ancient Rome Live creator and AIRC CEO Darius Arya hosts the sessions, where he provides unique insights and information on a range of subjects – past examples include the Ides of March & Assassination of Julius Caesar and (the) Antonine Plague.
