Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love Roman history and agree with others that more pictures would greatly enrich the presentation. Speaker is solid and information great. I hope we will see more episodes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor! Lecturer was knowledgeable but spoke much too quickly. The descriptions were useless without pictures. This was not even an overview or teaser and not very helpful or interesting.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from worth little to audience attracted to title Who is the audience?. In my case it is as a person interested in seeing underground structures and learning about them. The course describes two such structures nearly entirely with words, not pictures. More like a guide's remarks as the site is toured by a blind person.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Race To The Finish Line We thought we were watching speed dating ; it’s the journey in between that counts not getting to the end of the lecture; where are the visuals where are the maps to accompany the words? Most unsatisfying presentation and one totally unfamiliar with Roman history would find the lecture bewildering. However, in general we love The Great Courses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs work, but has potential 1. Everyone else is right, add visual aids (e.g. maps, floor plans, photographs). 2. The color grading on the studio segments is terrible. Did Zack Snyder direct this? Dull as ditchwater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Course! I loved the first lecture. the course is not released yet. I like this professor's teaching style and this course will add lots of new wonderful information to the complement of courses about the Roman Empire on the Great Courses Plus. It is very difficult when going to Rome to see sights of the ancient city except for some remains that are thought to be the ancient forum. this courses shows different places that are hidden under the streets and will give more info when in Rome of where to go to see the actual sites.

Beneath the Streets of Ancient Rome

01: Beneath the Streets of Ancient Rome

Join an archaeologist, Professor Darius Arya, to uncover some truly hidden gems of ancient Rome with two exceptional sites that were intentionally created underground in Antiquity for specific purposes: the subterranean basilica at Porta Maggiore and the Domus Transitoria of Nero on the Palatine Hill. Both are still little-known to the public at large, but they preserve a unique and fascinating window into life in early imperial Rome.
