Description: In this fully immersive application that supports free roaming, the Rome Reborn team is proud to host Beth Harris and Steven Zucker of Smarthistory, who present the Basilica of Maxentius and Constantine (also known as the Basilica Nova).

This was the last monumental civic building built in pre-Christian Rome. With a main entrance off the Via Sacra, it was constructed during the reign of Maxentius as part of a project that included rebuilding the nearby Temple of Venus and Rome. The vast hall (96 meters long and 65 meters wide) is covered by three cross vaults 35 meters high. The walls and floors were covered with marble.




Review: Once again we are entering the educational world of “Rome Reborn” – a series of educational experience about ancient Rome! As with all educational apps, you will only get value for money from it if you are truly interested in what the app is about. So if you enjoy ancient Roman history this might be of interest to you. Sure, there isn’t a whole lot of content here but the price is about right for the amount you get and at least it looks pretty great. While it won’t be for everyone those who are interested in the subject matter for research or educational purposes should appreciate it.
