You are a student in history class at university, but you are getting bad grades near the end of the session and need help desperately if you want to pass this session. Your teacher wants to help you. His solution: a time-traveling machine (*nota bene*: you’re not supposed to know it’s a time machine). You end up in Ancient Rome where you have to make your way as a mistreated domestic slave to become emperor and start the next chapter: The Medieval Times.
