Some civilizations have left many legacies and traditions that have changed the world. Their inventions we admire or still use today. Ancient civilizations are notorious for being at the top of their game then falling into decline. Civilizations once prospered long ago but many failed for different reasons. The Roman, Persian, Egyptian, Mongol and the Ottoman Empires had left behind many artifacts that today our world can analyze and depict what the civilizations daily lives were like.
One example was the Roman Empire; it exemplified fascinating methods of the citizens’ entertainment. All representing Roman culture, the primary sources of entertainment in the Roman empire were gladiatorial matches, theatrical performances, and chariot racing. The Roman Empire owed much of its inspiration for sports, gladiatorial contests, and executions to Etruria, Campania, and Luciana. Historians have researched how gladiatorial fights came to Rome for hundreds of years. Researchers have pointed to extremely old places such as such as Etruria, Campania, and Lucania (Connolly 2003, 68).
The Roman Empire is often praised for being advanced far before its time with the many innovations and breakthroughs that came about during its reign. Although there has been much history recovered long after the fall of the empire, some structures still remain a mystery. One of these happens to be the Roman Colosseum and is still standing in present day Italy, and there are still many questions to be answered about this gargantuan structure. Colosseum: Roman Death Trap is an hour-long documentary film written, produced, and directed by Gary Glassman, and was aired on the Public Broadcast System on February 11, 2015. Not only does it present the findings of historians and archaeologists, but this documentary also outlines how these people use archeological methods and strategies to answer their questions about how the colosseum operated.
Italy has beautiful art and structure masterpieces, and Italy is a great place for anyone to enjoy whether it 's food or entertainment Italy has it all. Italy has many great attractions but the biggest one is the Roman Colosseum.The colosseum was used for battles between two men or a man and animal. These men were called gladiators,and most of them come from poor families that lived on the streets, and many of these gladiators became rich and wealthy so did their families. The one that impresses many people is Italy 's technology. Italy doesn 't have Microsoft or Apple, Italy has their three most famous pieces of tech, three: words Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini.
How far can a person’s ego and ambitiousness go? Roman emperors’ engineering abilities were so precise and always had great purposes, but those features are not only the reason their huge projects were so successful. In the video “Rome: Engineering an Empire” talks about how the Roman emperor’s ambitiousness and egos were able to construct such incredible buildings like the Colosseum (70-80 CE), the Pont-du-Gard aqueduct (16 BCE), temples, roads, the Roman Pantheon (118-125 CE), the Hadrian Wall (128 CE), etc. It is clear how the power of these emperors can make such hard engineering projects so quick and at the same time so precise, with no errors. For example the Vespasian's Colosseum, the world’s most famous arena, was built by more than 12,000 men and it took them 8 years to finish.
The influence of latin, greek, and roman culture is everywhere in today's society. Majority of english words come from latin words, the scientific terms for animals also comes from latin. Ancient greek stories are still enjoyed today and teach us important meanings. The ancient greek gods represent things and traits in our daily life. Like Zeus who is the god of rain and sky and is the most powerfulest of god.
The greatest Roman legacy The Roman legacy that I believe has had the greatest impact on today's society is Roman architecture and engineering. The quote "Rome fell but its legacy lived on" means that even though Rome fell there architecture and engineering were still left behind. The things they and had built and created was still behind even though they were weren't at the top anymore. The Roman legacy that I has the greatest impact on today's society is Roman architecture and engineering. The other roman legacies were Roman art, Roman language and writing, and Roman philosophy law and citizenship.
How does the legacy of the ancient Greco-Roman world impact my life? Rome has by far one of the most influential cultures in history, and Greece is right there next to it. Put these two cultures together and the contributions go on forever. Almost everything I have comes from the Greco-Roman world and I don’t even realize it. The world is full of inventions, foods, homes, and even societies that are influenced by Rome and Greece.
Ancient Rome was one of the largest empires in the ancient world, it expanded all throughout the Mediterranean Sea. Ancient Rome was gradually built up through four expansions until they had conquered all the land surrounding Rome, they were stable for many years in a time period called the Pax Romana, the time of Roman peace. The large empire then gradually lost all of its power and split into many different sections. The primary reasons for the fall of the Roman empire were political instability, social issues, and weakening borders. One reason for the fall of the Roman empire was political instability.
The strong point of the Roman Empire was their army. The Roman army is said to be one of the most successful armies that ever existed. The roman army was well organized, well equipped and well trained. The roman army had to take care of a huge empire. They well-built Roman roads helped them move around the empire quickly.
