Rome - The World's First Superpower

Larry looks at Rome's 300th birthday in 400BC, conquering it's nearest neighbours, the Estrucans. Larry looks at the attack Rome came under from the Gauls in the battle of Allia, that lasted three years. The city survived, but only just and the leaders vowed to never come so close to destruction again. The Republic soon began a century of expansion. Larry then heads to Erice, where he discovers that the Roman expansion soon led them into another conflict, this time against the Carthaginians.
