What is Ancient Rome Live?

Created by Darius Arya, director of American Institute for Roman Culture (AIRC), working with AIRC’s digital team ANCIENT ROME LIVE is a free online learning platform for studying Ancient Rome through our entirely original content on Rome and the empire.

You can choose how you would like to learn through video, text, photo, live stream or podcast.

Who is it for?

For anyone who wants to learn about ancient Rome and its ongoing legacy. Travelers, tourists, students, and teachers.


Ancient Rome, direct to your inbox!

Our Mission

There is no good content out there on the web that really presents ancient Rome through the Ages. People (history lovers, educators, students, travelers)  scour the internet and find reposted TV documentaries, recent new articles on discoveries or heritage at risk, conservation projects in Rome, but no one ties it all together in a searchable format with

  • Video
  • Text
  • Podcast
  • Livestream

AIRC Is in a position to achieve this goal with ARL because we have been active in Rome for over 15 years and in the past five years become a real leader with Darius Arya at the helm online on various social media platforms, as well as  Darius’ tv hosting and collaborations with the city of Rome, museums of the city of Rome, national superintendency, MiBACT, and a robust amount of travel, throughout Italy and throughout the Roman Empire, accumulating experiences and content to share on ARL

We are so excited share our extensive knowledge and access to sites and collections to bring you Ancient Rome Live!
