Did Nero fiddle?

Posted on: Jul 18, 2011 @ 6:27:53 pm

While Nero fiddled, Rome burned.

So some have said. But if you take the time to check the database, Biography in Context, you can find the facts that are known about Emperor Nero and the Great Fire of Rome. One fact: The Great Fire began on July 19 in the year 64, C.E. You can also find Biography in Context and other biographical databases in UCF's list of Articles and Databases.

If you are grilling outside tonight, be careful with that fire.
