The Western Roman Empire fell in the year 476 A.D, there were many factors contributing to the fall of the Empire, such as unconcerned citizens, population, expansion, religion, economic, slave labor, and the military. In Document 1 it states that people gave up on the Roman Empire and didn’t believe it was worth saving. Citizens weren’t allowed to take part in politics and were excluded from their own army. The government slowly lost support which increased the level of government fraud. Also, population decline was a big factor to the fall of Rome; it had decreased from 1,000,000 people to 250,000.
I believe the Han Empire collapsed because of the Silk Road, a trading route from China to the Mediterranean. It bought some pro’s and con’s, like the spread of different cultures and the spread of the Bubonic Plague not only across China but parts of Europe as well. The Black Death originated in Europe and was spread across the eastern part of the world. It killed many people in the Han Empire meaning it killed thousands upon thousands.

When the Europeans arrived, they wiped out most of the Native American population and destroyed their carefully sculpted land by building. Europeans, however, were not able to adapt to their new life in the Americas since they just didn’t know how to manipulate their environment like the Native Americans. Life was actually so brutal for the Europeans that many of them ran away to live with the Indians, suggesting that the Indians had a higher quality of life than the first Europeans did. “Horrifying the leaders of Jamestown and Plymouth, scores of English ran off to live with the Indians” (Mann, p9). The “high counter/low counter” argument further suggests that the Native Americans had a high standard of living, probably higher than the European standard of living at that time.
The roman and Han empire, although two completely different civilizations, yet despite that both fell due to similar key contributors. The Roman Empire and the Han Dynasty fell due to alike reasons.
