Roman Forum

We continued on to the Forum, a large circular area surrounded with great columns supporting huge blocks on top. The forum was used as an area where people sold or bought things, met friends or listened to the news or announcements. Sometimes even classes would be held there.

Even now it turned out to be a meeting place for all sorts of groups. You could sit on the hills around and look back to the forum, where people met, tour groups talked and kids played around. Things haven't changed a lot in the last few thousand years.
