Strolling the Streets of Ancient Rome

I’m a sucker for stuff like this–the Rome Reborn project is dedicated to creating a virtual model of Rome as it stood in 320. This video tour swoops you past all the sites that gave you blisters if you’ve visited the Eternal City. I liked it a lot, even as the music and animation made me feel like I’d just built a new wonder in Civilization.
