Western society owes a lot to the Romans. Parts of our government, language, even culture can be traced back there. Here, you can join the Roman legion marching across Europe. Watch the Roman Senate as they scheme their way into power. Join the crowd in the Circus Maximus to watch the chariot races. In ancient Rome, families liked to go on vacation and lounge by the sea. They went to market, celebrated holidays, and even went out for dinner! Roman lives were like ours, but they were different in some ways too. Roman houses didn't have bathrooms. Instead, everyone went to public baths, once every eight days. And when they partied, it went to extremes. They would eat so much that they would make themselves throw up! Travel back to ancient Rome to see what it was like to live in one of the largest-ever empires on Earth.
