Scattered across Europe, Asia Minor and North Africa, they are silent reminders of the most dominant empire in the history of Western Civilization. How did the Romans manage to preserve their culture while expanding so quickly? The answer lies, in part, in the cities they left behind. Leading historians reveal how the Roman practice of immediately building a city in any territory they conquered helped to control the sprawling empire for almost a thousand years. See how these cities served as fortifications against attack, and a center from which the Romans could extend their influence over the surrounding area. Explore how the Romans expanded on the practices of the great cultures that preceded them the Greeks and Etruscans to build a society designed to last forever. With visits to some of the most stunning ruins on earth, ROME'S GLORIOUS CITIES is a window to the heart of a great civilization.
