I apologize, but several months I read the recommendation of a book of illustrations of what the Roman forum might have looked like during it high time period. It seems that you can buy it outside by sellers the gates. I can't seem to find it again. I would like to find it on-line so that I might study it heavily before hand. May I ask the name of it for I am on tourist overload. Thank you so much for I am sorry for my forgetfulness.
