Rome Online

It's always interesting to see what sort of fun resources I can find online for the topics we're studying. Here are some that I collected for Rome.

The Stories Coins Tell - in interactive thing about different Roman coins and the stories they tell.

This one's not interactive, but it is a clear explination of the way the Roman Republic worked. This is good information because I'm looking forward toward the time when we're teaching about the American Republic, and this will lay some groundwork for that, so we'll spend some time talking about this, and I'll have him do a narration when we're done.

This documentary from National Geographic has some general information about the peak of Roman civilization, and contrasts the reigns of Trajan and Hadrian.
