Rome Reborn — An Amazing Digital Model of Ancient Rome

What did ancient Rome look like in A.D. 320? Rome Reborn is an inter­na­tion­al ini­tia­tive to answer this ques­tion and cre­ate a 3D dig­i­tal mod­el of the Eter­nal City at a time when Rome’s pop­u­la­tion had reached its peak (about one mil­lion) and the first Chris­t­ian church­es were being built. The result is a tru­ly stun­ning bird’s-eye and ground view of ancient Rome that makes you feel as if you were actu­al­ly there. There are also some high-res­o­lu­tion images that lend them­selves per­fect­ly to being used as wall­pa­per for your com­put­er. HT @amishare
