The Roman Forum was the central area around which ancient Rome developed, in which commerce and the administration of justice took place and was the political heart of the huge empire the Romans created. Large archaeological monuments include triumphal arches with Latin inscriptions and Roman numerals carved on stone blocks, which are still legible today. Rulers, Caesars, commissioned huge statues and monuments to ensure their legacies, and for the veneration of Roman gods and to impress the people.
