Quintus Horatius Flaccus (known as Horace) lived from 65 to 8 BC and was Rome’s leading lyric and satiric poet of his age. This web site interprets his life and times through the archaeology of his house.
This is an example of an emerging genre � the archeological site as web site. You can hear Horace’s verse in Latin, or pan around images of the place � if you have enough bandwidth and the right plug-ins. Even with a slow internet connection, you can find plenty of text documents to explain this place and the research going on there.
