Abstract:

On one fateful night in July of 64 A.D., Rome was engulfed in a blazing fire which lasted for nine days and destroyed 10 of Rome's 14 districts, including many of the greatest buildings in antiquity. Two-thirds of the city was left in shambles. This film follows scientists as they use cutting-edge forensic techniques to discover the mystry of the fire. They explore different theories of how the fire began--natural causes, a twisted plot of the narcissistic Emperor Nero or an act of treason by the rebellious early Christians.
