The Surprising History of Rome

The Surprising History of Rome is a history documentary presented by Terry Jones, unearthing surprising and little-known facts that deepen our understanding of the ancient Romans. The film explores the lodgings and workshops, bars and baths, of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Rome itself as it follows in the footsteps of an average tradesman and his wife. Topics include diet, hygiene, work, recreation, marriage, and slavery - and behind it all, the vast inequality between rich and poor.
