The process of Roman expansion happened very rapidly, and this process recognized as Romanization in the history. The purpose of this study is to examine the process of Romanization, and this raises a question of: “How and what ways Roman civilization spread around the world?” Before going to study the research question we should delineate the concept of Romanization. In the book “The failure of Romanization in Celtic Britain” Michael Jones (1987) acknowledged that “Romanization was the inculcation of Roman values, language, material culture and loyalties in a provincial, non-Roman society - in the case of Britain, a tribal Celtic society” (p. 126).

This was seen it at the beginning of the Roman Empire when Caesar used his army to take over Gaul and incorporating its resources into the Roman Empire. Some of the land that Rome was able
The Ancient Rome Republic sort of met the common good because they did pretty well in some of the groups of go One thing the Romans did well for the common good was the public service in Ancient Rome, which was very good so I gave the public service an A+! One great thing that the Romans had to provide a public service was the public Roman bathhouses. It’s good enough that there is a bathhouse for everyone, but a really cool thing about it was that the water was heated which was really nice for people who didn 't have running water in their own house. Also, no matter if you were a plebeian or patrician, or a woman you could use them. Another great thing the Romans provided for public service was the aqueducts.
Thanks to the smart brains of the Ancient Romans! Anyhow, after the Roman army won the war, they decided to build bridges, roads, and other helpful transportation devices. There once was a saying that Every road leads to Rome.” I am not quite sure what that means, but it sounds like a good
Introduction The Roman Empire, was one of the most powerful empires in the world. The very mention of the name evoked wondrous feats of military daring, innovation in architecture and imaginable wonders of engineering. Rome herself was, literally, seen as the light, in an otherwise dark world and all of this magnificence was made possible due to the Roman system of taxation. Roman taxation system helped to build a solid economic foundation of the Roman Empire. So here comes to a question: how did the Roman taxation work?
Although they persecuted the Christians, the Romans provided them a reason to stand up for their beliefs. In conclusion, the Roman Empire played a key role in the spread of Christianity. Rome was the foreign power that fulfilled Hebrew prophesy and their advanced network of infrastructure helped spread the religion. Also, martyrdom and the persecution of the Christians brought about more converts to the religion. As a result of Rome’s impact on Christianity, it is now a major religion with many followers around the world.

Because there was an abundance of Greek art, the Roman’s used it to decorate their buildings and probably the homes of the aristocracy. The presence of Greek philosophy and literature grew in Rome through the influence of the people captured into slavery. Many of these citizens were educated and civilized. They became the teachers to the Roman youth. The Greek and Roman Gods were the same
As attested by Kamm, A., & Graham, A. (2014), the Roman act of conquering of Carthage, Macedonia and Greece in the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC made different in some way, what was once a great ease and comfort and privilege for the ruling elite into having superior strength, influence, or authority factor driving both social and economic policies for the Republic as a whole. The arrival of a large number of slaves during this time period first was a sign of great wealth and power, but later make unstable an already fragile Roman class system. As stated by Scheidel, W. (1997), farms originally ran by small business families during the whole period of Italy were soon eaten greedily up and restore to a former place by large number of slave running plantations owned by the aristocratic elite. Cheaply slave labor replaced work for the common man and the roles of those not employed increased massively to epidemic proportions.
