Column of Trajan, 113 CE continuous frieze winds around the column like a long comic strip, telling the story of Trajan’s battles now a rich source for historians who study Roman military history—shows what camps were like, what soldiers wore, etc. 645 feet of relief carving with 2500 figures on the top of the column used to be Trajan—now it’s St. Peter now the bell tower for a tiny medieval church at its base

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
