Drive solutions group, SEW-EURODRIVE is proudly sponsoring The Ancient Rome Exhibition: The Empire that Shaped the World. The interactive exhibition is now showing at the custom-built Docklands Pavilion in Melbourne.
The exhibition brings to life the incredible technology and mighty war machines of the Roman Empire not seen in over 2000 years.
An era of massive construction and large scale technical innovation, the Roman period will be recreated with over 50 exhibits on display, including the land odometer, a complex but ingenious method of measuring distances on land and water. The exhibition gives a fascinating insight into the origins of technology produced in the modern era by companies such as SEW-EURODRIVE.
According to Managing Director, Robert Merola, the exhibition is a unique opportunity for Australians to explore the technology of Ancient Rome.
The Ancient Rome Exhibition: The Empire that Shaped the World is open in Melbourne from the 31st of March until the 15th of July 2012.
