 Baths of Nero

Directions: Roma, Region IX (to Via Flaminia), south (to Via Recta), southwest (to Baths of Nero). SHORTCUT: @go Baths of Nero
 

Resources:

Uses: The site will be useful for providing additional cultural background to the OLC ch 23 and will have enough rooms for students to play games such as Indicium and Quaere (still in development).  There will also be objects there that can be used for treasure hunt assignments. I've used the Baths of Trajan for the above purposes. Having more bath sites will make it easier to have the whole class visit baths in smaller groups during these sessions.  Once the botularius bot is up and running, students will be able to interact with him in Latin using the vocab in ch 23.
