A Tour of the Circus Maximus

 

The year is 65 AD and the controversial Emperor Nero has spared no expense to fulfill his promise to the people of Rome. The Circus Maximus has been rebuilt following the great fire and is now the most impressive track ever constructed.  While this endears Nero to charioteering fans, discontent grows among the Senators over his frivolous spending.

Follow along with our intrepid chaperon, Appius Teretina, as he guides you through these true events on the final day of the festival of Ceres. Place bets on your favorite Charioteer team and find out if the Blues, Reds, Whites or the Emperor’s favored Greens, carry the day! 

And, if you’re lucky, the Emperor himself will appear before the final race of the day. You’ll discover that even amongst civil unrest and treasonous plots of murder, the show must go on!

Learn about the Circus Maximus, chariot racing, the notorious Emperor Nero and a real-life murderous plot as you Step Inside the Story of BARDEUM’s The Charioteer.
