Supplement and substitute freely with your own discoveries and favorites.

The only constraint is that your journal entries should not duplicate class work.

  • the Capitoline Wolf
  • any fragment(s) of the "Servian" wall
  • an inscribed milestone from any ancient Roman road
  • any aqueduct remains we have not visited as a class
  • a walk through Rome following a route an ancient Roman could have taken
  • an ancient Roman coin representing a specific building or monument
