Legions Of Conquest They began as proud defenders of their city and became the most successful warriors in history. They conquered nation after nation and in doing so fashioned the greatest empire the world had ever seen. In her brutal grasp, Rome held together a huge expanse for more than 1,000 years. This is a story of proud men and their unending quest for Roman expansion.
Cult Of Order Romans thought they had united the world. But after centuries of conquest and glory, resentment festered within. Repression and chaos replaced tolerance and order; and the gap between the wealthy and the poor had become unimaginably wide. Indeed ninety-five percent of the population struggled beneath the poverty line. Cults of dissent emerged that threatened to divide the empire forever. "Cult of Order" aims to track the corruption of the values that made Rome 'great', as excellence gave way to excess.
