Foundation of Rome

Active selection:
Foundation of Rome.  Romulus ploughed a ceremonial furrow around the top of the Palatine Hill to mark the outline of the new city (left inset).  The early city of Rome was simply a collection of simple huts set on the Palatine Hill.  As the city grew, the Palatine Hill became a favourite location for the homes of the wealthier citizens.  Original artwork for pp16-17 of Look and Learn issue no 1006 (20 June 1981).
