This history documentary series covers Law & Order in Ancient Rome. In this first episode we consider the very foundation of Law & Order by examining the Law itself. We cover this subject by tracing its chronological evolution from the Roman Monarchy to the Roman Republic and finally the Roman Empire. Throughout these eras of Roman History we see how laws were passed and how they impacted society. Arising from this system are some of the first lawyers in history and a body of legal jurisprudence which is still felt today. Stay tuned for more episodes on Roman Law and Order.
