This is a 16 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on the Ancient Civilizations - The Burning of Rome. Each of the slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
During the night of July 18, 64 AD, fire broke out in the merchant area of the city of Rome. Fanned by summer winds, the flames quickly spread through the dry, wooden structures of the Imperial City. Soon the fire took on a life of its own consuming all in its path for 6 days and 7 nights. When the conflagration finally ran its course it left 70%y percent of the city in smoldering ruins.
Rumors soon arose accusing the Emperor Nero of ordering the torching of the city and standing on the summit of the Palatine playing his lyre as flames devoured the city. These rumors have never been confirmed. In fact, Nero rushed to Rome from his palace in Antium Anzio and ran about the city all that first night without his guards directing efforts to quell the blaze. But the rumors persisted and the Emperor looked for a scapegoat and found one in the Christians.
The presentation covers the following:
Map of Fire of Rome
Rumors of Nero
Horror of the Fire
No One Fought Back
