History occurs in time and space. When we study history, we almost always give priority to the chronological arrangement of events. But when we study on site, place dominates. One of the characteristic physical features of Rome today is that we regularly encounter, in the same place, at least traces of the centuries that have gone before. The Roman Forum, the Pantheon, and San Clemente are particularly rich examples of this layering of Rome and the opportunities to observe the chronological sweep of the history of Rome in one location.
