If you have not yet been to Rome and know nothing about this city then this might be an introduction. I was hoping for a deep dive into Roman city life during the Empire, but was very disappointed.
The information about the Colosseum was reasonable, but the hesitantly delivered introduction (30 mins!) was badly organised and scrappy and the information about the Forum was very poor indeed.
Liz presented a thorough introduction to the beginnings of Rome, Its topography, early leaders, architecture through the development and uses of the Forum, the ampitheatre (Colliseum) and the circus maximus. Her many graphics were interesting as well. Her understanding of the time and the use of the gladiators was especially fascinating.
lectures are great learning experiences
Not an issue with the last one, but I would prefer that participants be muted by you before opening for questions at the end. I recognize a balance, but chat can work well until opened up in last 20 to 30 minutes.
Maybe some session geared towards older children/teens. Also, would like to see a class that delves into the specifics of the Julio-Claudian dynasty and the relationship between the family
