Digital History Project
Gladiators were the most feared and sought-after warriors in ancient Rome. Gladiatorial fighting in the Roman empire was an essential feature of social and political life because it distracted the populace from political and economic problems.
Final Digital Humanities assignment for Roman History (HIST 503), taught by Dr. Elizabeth Pollard. Students worked individually to create a thesis-driven and evidence-based interactive timeline or map detailing a theme in Roman History. Details about the class can be found at the class website (link may not be active): sites.google.com/sdsu.edu/hist503/
