Computer experts have unveiled a digital reproduction of Ancient Rome as it appeared in it’s peak of power at 320AD. This $2 million project was used to do scientific calculations, such as determining the crowd capacity of the ancient buildings.

The project took 10 years to finish, with an international team of archaeologists, architects and computer experts from the University of Virginia and UCLA, with researchers based in Italy, Germany and the UK.
