: Salvete! And welcome to the Eternal City of Rome! In this introductory episode, we’ll learn how a pair of belligerent feral children who were raised by wolves [citation needed] beat the geopolitical odds and founded a city that captured the world’s imagination (along with a good bit of its territory) for over 2500 years! Along the way, we’ll discover Rome’s founding myths, Italian geography, and an outline of historical periodization.
