Immerse yourself in a series of epic 3D visualisations and embark on a time-travelling journey alongside experts at Newcastle University. Follow the journey as archaeologists delved deep into the Ancient City of Rome, uncovering the grand tapestry of history, marked by seismic shifts in politics, armies, and religion using cutting edge technology. Their quest posed critical questions about investigating ancient cities, exploring suburban mysteries, and discerning the ripple effects of Rome's transformations on a broader scale from 1st to 8th centuries CE. This is the story of Rome Transformed, where history comes to life through the lens of innovation and exploration.
