New Julius Caesar Exhibit opens at S.C.State Museum
“Julius Caesar: Roman Military Might and Machines” brings to life one of the most technologically significant times in history. The exhibit features more than 30 intricately designed and functional inventions from the height of the Roman Empire. There are war, transportation and civil engineering machines, including sundials, water clocks, grinding mills, pottery wheels, arches and cranes. The Roman story also will be told through replicas, recreated artifacts, digital images and computer animations. “Julius Caesar: Roman Military Might and Machines” is an award-winning traveling exhibition that was crafted by a consortium in Italy. The State Museum also is partnering with Legio VI Ferrata Fidelas Constans, South Carolina’s Roman legion, to present several programs and events during the run of the exhibition, which ends May 22, 2016.
