THE ROMAN EMPIRE IN THE FIRST CENTURY
Two thousand years ago, at the dawn of the first century, the Roman Empire was the world’s first and most enduring superpower. Through the experiences, memories and writings of the people who lived it, The Roman Empire in the First Century tells the story of that time — of the emperors, slaves, poets, and peasants who wrested order from chaos, built the most cosmopolitan society they world had ever seen, and created the foundation from which western civilization grew.
The Roman Empire in the First Century was filmed in Italy, Egypt, Turkey, Israel, Great Britain, France, the Netherlands and Germany.
