He was able to capture and reinstall the Roman empire in Italy, some areas in Spain, North Africa, Ionia, Palestine, and Syria by 552 B.C.

When Aristides gained citizenship he praised Rome stating, “You have divided into two parts all men throughout your empire... everywhere giving citizenship to all those who are more accomplished, noble, and powerful, even as they retain their nativeborn identities, while the rest you have made subjects and the governed.” With faith restored in the state, and reason once again to be loyal, Rome continued to expand its
Aspects such as these, ultimately, led these two empires to be, arguably, the most influential societies in the world; as their legacies still live on today. Political integration between both empires had both similarities and differences, most notably being different with the ways they chose those to rule. In Imperial Rome, bureaucracy relied on local elites (landholders) and the middle-class citizens to control provinces. Imperial Rome was far less complex, compared to the bureaucracy of Han China. Many official positions within the government were bought or became hereditary through family wealth as opposed to earned by merit, due to this fact, the Roman bureaucracy often suffered from poor governance.
The Etruscans were a very influential association of people that lived in Northern Italy or had moved there around 700-750 B.C. The Etruscans developed cities throughout the north of the Magna Graecia and spoke a different language that was totally different from the Indo-European language family. When we look back on the roman culture its influence is very heavily by the Etruscan, which is very understanding because the Romans accompany the same land as the Etruscans in Northern Italy. With Evidence found through Archaeological evidence and some writing evidence from time ago, we see that Etruscans had influenced Rome.

Despite the fact that British rule in India during the Imperial period was extremely negative for the Indian people, it ultimately created an improved Indian nation. The British forced the idea of monoculture, were racist, created unfair trade and economic distress. However, they did provide an education system, improved human rights, promoted peace and created a more modern society for the Indian nation. The British rule began in the early 1600’s.

The American public school system is arguably weak when compared to other countries, but it still functions to educate the public. The issue of inequality arises when it comes to higher education and who has access to it. Due to higher education costing anywhere from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars in the United States, it is easy to see why there is an unequal level of access to higher education. Some might argue that higher education is not necessary and that the poor can find a living without it. This is not only restricting the poor to the lower class, but is simply not true.
The book of Aeneid is writing by Virgil who tells a story about a legendary Trojan who traveled to Italy who became an ancestors of the Romans. The age of Augustus is also about a leader that ruled in the Roman emperor. Augustus told Virgil to write a story about a hero and Virgil did as he was told. I believe that the scholars were right about how the Age of Augustus was important to know and to understand it because that was a huge part in the making of The Aeneid. If it wasn’t for Augustus and Virgil then there wouldn’t be the story of Aeneid.
China’s Han dynasty and the Romans valued technology in their civilizations, but they used technology for different reasons to accommodate their empire. The Hans relied heavily on agriculture and developed technology to make labor easier and more efficient, which is depicted by some of their technology like iron metallurgy and water systems. In contrast, the Romans focused primarily on science and mathematics, so the intellectuals looked down on technology as it was used by slaves and for their labor. Han China’s attitude towards technology was more appreciative and focused on its benefits toward labor than the Romans who viewed technology as inferior and for the laborers in their class-divided society. All the documents written by the Han,
