Archaeologist, professor, and television personality, Darius Arya will give a lecture and live stream from Rome focusing on the Circus Maximus. Used for chariot races and hunting wild animals for sport, the Circus Maximus was Rome's largest sporting venue- holding 150,000- 200,000 people.

Dating to the time of Trajan, we can finally appreciate just how massive the stadium was- the Empire's greatest speedway.
