Time Travel to Ancient Rome

Colosseum 1830s
Loretta reports:

As a fan of Lindsey Davis’s Falco novels, I’m always trying to create a 3D image in my mind of the Rome of his time.

Although this recreation is for a later period, it’s a fascinating image, allowing us to feel almost like time travelers. All we need are virtual images of the city's teeming life.
