- Rome as Capital of the Empire
- Roman Religion
- Everyday life in Rome
- Roman Education
- Roman Government and Administration
- Entertainment and amenities.
In these Guidelines topics (a), (d) and (f) are dealt with in some detail. In the case of the remaining topics the teacher should include details on the same lines as those outlined for (a), (d) and (f). The amount of detail given for each topic varies. Teachers are not to interpret from this that one topic is more important than another. All eight topics are of equal importance. Primary evidence and resource materials for teachers are included to assist in the teaching of all topics.
