The Roman Forum

To commemorate the Ides of March (15 March in the Roman calendar), I thought that I would post this image of the Roman Forum, the site where Julius Caesar was killed. Perched above the Forum, we were treated to a view of the ruins of ancient government buildings, at the center of the city of Rome. It was for centuries, the center of Roman public life, the site of elections and the venue for public speeches and markets.
