Immersion 2012: Ancient Rome  
 
The Baths of Caracalla in Rome were massive, covering 33 acres and requiring an army of slaves to keep it heated and staffed. The class debated whether this environment, where everyone from slave to senator mixed in the nude, was an egalitarian one that threatened social boundaries. Here Stephen Batchelder '15 and Jim Blaich '14 listen to Dr. Hartnett discuss the building's architecture, which inspired the first Penn Station in New York.
