As photographed from the North East corner of the Palatine grounds above the Roman Forum. .
I am guessing that there are easily another 100 snapshots of known historical significance in this pano.
The Roman Forum is located in a valley that is between the Palatine hill and the Capitoline hill. It originally was a marsh, but the Romans drained the area and turned it into a center of political and social activity. The Forum was the marketplace of Rome and also the business district and civic center. It was expanded to include temples, a senate house and law courts. When the Roman Empire fell, the Forum became forgotten, buried and was used as a cattle pasture during the Middle Ages.
Much of the forum has been destroyed. Columns and stone blocks are all that remain of some temples. The arch of Titus and the arch of Septimius Severus still stand and are in good shape. Like many other ancient Roman buildings, stone blocks have been removed from the Forum and used to build nearby churches and palaces.

Why is my panorama CURVED so badly ??. I see this with some others that I have done but never this bad before. l. Is it because I was high up and the Gigapan (level) was always shooting below its own horizon and the stitcher software spotted this as it aligned the photos. But still, you would think that it could get the horizon level?
