Roma Antiqua and the Syrian Liaison (screenshots)
Digital History Project
Having historically encapsulated massive stretches of European, North African, and Middle Eastern lands, the Roman Empire breached and held dominance over tens of millions of denizens across various culturally rich lands, one of which came to be known as Syria. Provincia Syria was a highly contested terrain located at the gate of Asia. These geographically hollow lands between the Mediterranean and the Euphrates proved to be ethnically strong and would become the most highly contested in almost all of human history. The Syrian Roman relationship would open the flood gates to a new era of provincial clout, leaving the Roman Empire unrecognizable.
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.
