(Make sure to hover over key terms in yellow to discover their meanings). Then go and participate in a digital conversation about the changing nature of Roman governance at TodaysMeet here. What did you learn about Roman Rule? What surprised you? If you were an ancient Roman, which form of Roman government do you think would have been best? Share and explain your ideas.
