From the Author

Let us pause for a while and take a peek at the fascinating wonders of nature, the majesty and the glory of God's creation and the spectacle of human engineering. Unfortunately, I cannot go to these places in as much as I want to so, I’m just taking this virtual expedition. I hope you can join me in this online adventure.

Forum Romanum or The Roman Forum

The Roman Forum is a major tourist destination in the city of Rome. It is a small, rectangular plaza encircled by the ruins of buildings from the ancient glory of the city. Romans used to call it Forum Magnum, or simply the Forum. It has been the center of Roman public life for centuries, where they hold triumphal processions and elections, a place for public speeches, criminal trials, and where gladiators measure each other’s strength. It is also a center for commerce.

This is the place where they erect statues and monuments to celebrate great Roman men. Scholars believe that this is the most famous meeting place in the history of the world.

Excavations and restorative efforts continue at the Roman Forum and continuously attract people around the world.
