Great to see before going to Rome,

This review is from: Rome: Engineering an Empire (DVD)
My boyfriend and I watched this video before going to Rome last October. It did a wonderful job introducing us to the overall timeline of Roman emperors and their architectural accomplishments. While it may not be 100% historically accurate, the very minor misrepresentations do not take away from the excellent introduction to Roman history. Since we were using it only as an introduction to Rome, all we needed were the major facts and timeline.
If you're traveling to Rome in the near future I'd HIGHLY suggest you watch this video (which you may be able to catch for free on cable TV). It was a beautiful experience to walk through the city and point at a building and say "Aren't those the markets that Damascus built for Trajan?"
The video is slightly dry and long, but it's definitely worth the time to watch.

I think you mean Apollodorus. He was an accomplished architect FROM Damascus. Glad you enjoyed Rome!
