Around 700 B.C, the Etruscans brought West Asian ideas about architecture to Italy and they taught these ideas to the Romans. Romans don't have much Etruscan architecture left but lots of their underground tombs do survive and some traces of their temples. Ancient Roman architecture and technology was very important to the Roman way of life.The first technology that ancient Romans used for architecture were hammers, clay to build wedge and ink.Today we still use ink and we use paint. Most of the building structures, mechanics, crafted structures were really famous around the world. Examples of Roman technology would be bridges, roads and military technology.
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. These civilizations have done astonishing things that have shaped the world today, however, we have also learned from the mistakes that led to their demise. Many civilizations have come and gone through the dream of having a utopia, a perfect society. Civilizations
What this did was create a dynasty in the Land of the Nile a long time ago. They started the base to today’s building and architecture. I think they were the most advanced ancient civilization due to the fact that they had and have the greatest impact on our lives today in modern society. The ancient Egyptian technologies and creations were the most beneficial for them back in those times. They also have the biggest impact on our society compared to other ancient civilizations.
In contrast, the good parts of migration are the Grand tour and Caravaggio. Migration as a whole is an essential part of history because it helps us to see how the culture and architecture of the people here in Rome and in Italy were
Romans are the people who really started everything to make our world like how it is today. With science, animals and many other things we still use today. A lot of our english words also come from latin which was the language that romans used. We even study latin words today and it’s still a language today, of course it is not as popular as spanish or english it is still used. Romans had slavery just like americans did, of course it was not the same thing but it still happened.
Much of this is similar to the roads I have all around me, so without the Romans I wouldn’t have that either. Roads in Greece weren’t as advanced, they were basically just dirt roads that were very difficult for travel. The roads would become very muddy when it would rain because there was no way for the water to flow off. So the roads I have now are more similar to the Roman road
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.
It is not only education that makes this area popular, it has a long and rich history for tourist to examine. One Major attraction is Spain besides the Roman ruins is the Alhambra. The Alhambra is not just a regular ruin, “It shows how great buildings can be built and rebuilt through the years” quoted by the text. Due to the building losing its purpose shortly after it was built, it was abandoned which caused it to fall into despair. The fort was rebuilt to serve its purpose as a palace Muslim residents but after being abandoned once again, the effects of nature transformed this sitting palace into a ruin which caused it to be a major tourist attraction that currently resides in Spain.
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.

It made a strong impact not only on our modern world but also on other ancient civilizations. From its beautiful architecture to its great scientific achievements, and culture, Ancient Egypt left the world better than it was. Its mastery captures people to this day. Although it is long gone, its whispers still echo from the sand dunes and into our lives. The clock that they first invented was built upon, the calendar they created is used today, and their building techniques are still studied and applied.
Ever wonder where the stadium had came from, well the Colosseum . For this great structure there has been a history behind it the Romans were the ones who built it. The Emperor, Vespasian at the time took a part of Rome to build something for the public. This man did as much as he could to be part of public affairs rather than build structures for his selfish ways. The "Construction began 72 C.E, captured 12,000 Jewish slaves"(Ponticelli) so they could do all the work together to save time on building the Colosseum.
Roman influences are visible all around us today. One of the most important lessons that our culture has taken from ancient Roman would be our roadways. Romans were the first to use roads that gave our society the formula for construction that allowed rainwater to drain off. They used numbered signposts every Roman mile, which indicated such things as the distance to the next town and which construction team had built the road.
