About Dr. Darius

A PhD archaeologist and host of several exploration shows, Dr. Darius Arya has rappelled down caverns, explored underground churches and temples, and crawled through ancient sewers in his quest for history and discovery. He has led excavations of famous Roman landmarks and partnered with leading organizations to research and preserve classic treasures, but his true passion is inspiring students to explore the wonders of the world both near to and far from them.

About the class

He was the most powerful man in the world--perhaps even in world history--until March 15 in 44 B.C. when he was assassinated. As we near the 2065th anniversary of one of world history’s most notable events, we’ll explore the life and death of Julius Caesar--live from the exact place he was killed. Join renowned archaeologist Dr. Darius Arya to debunk the myths of Caesar’s Rome, re-enact the events of the Ides of March, and understand just why Caesar’s legacy remains ever-present and ever-important even today.
