Romans and the Economy - The Rise of The Roman Empire: Episode 3

April 14th, 2020


Welcome to The Rise of The Roman Empire podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This third episode looks at the Romans and the Economy. During the Roman Republic, the Roman economy was largely based on farming and trade, centered on goods such as grain and wine. Military expansion powered the economy, bringing in slaves and riches back to Rome, which transformed the city of Rome and the Romans themselves.


Written and Narrated by Cambridge University Archaeologist: Matthew John Brooks
