Digital Ancient Rome
"Digital Ancient Rome" is a K-12 summer seminar that will give teachers the opportunity to learn about the most important examples of Roman art, architecture, and archaeology through the latest digital resources. Material culture was not secondary to texts for most Romans in both shaping and reflecting meaning in their lives. Many aspects of their cultural, social, political, and historical understanding would have been communicated and passed on through art, artifacts, and their built environment. In this seminar teachers will become familiar with a wide variety of famous monuments and buildings from Rome - such as the Forum, Pantheon, Ara Pacis, and column of Trajan - in addition to the evidence from Pompeii and Herculaneum that tells us so much about daily life. The teachers will then be equipped to take these digital resources back into their classrooms and give their students a fascinating and interdisciplinary view of the Roman world.
