The foras were monumental public squares, constructed in Rome between 46BC and 113AD, the ruins of which litter today's Rome. These squares were places to discuss politics, economy and religion in ancient Rome. The most famous of these are the Forum of Julius Caesar, the Forum of Augustus and the largest and most grand, Trajan's Forum, with it's carved column commemorating in graphic details the emperor's victories.
