03. Ancient Rome: 800 B.C. to 600 A.D. (cc)

Five projects that date back to the ancient Romans. Projects include: Vellum Journal - Books were made of papyrus scrolls. Later, parchment or vellum, a sheer paper, was used to record events, write letters and make books. Samian Ware Tile - Many homes were decorated with pottery wall decorations called reliefs. Many different types of clay were used depending on the area. One style was called Samian ware, a red clay pottery popular after A.D. 100. Aqueducts - The land that surrounded Rome was abundant with springs. This water was channeled into the city of Rome through the channels of aqueducts. Large cisterns held the water at the end of the aqueducts and were used for baths and fountains. Mosaic Frame - Although mosaics originated in Greece, the Romans became famous for their mosaics, which are bits of glass and stone arranged to form designs for jewelry, vases and other art forms. Marine Mosaic Tile - Because of the proximity to water, marine or sea themes were an important design element in Ancient Rome. 05/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
