How does ancient Rome affect us today ?
Romans used aqueducts, and although they didn't invent them, they did perfect them.Aqueducts were a bit like modern day sewers.They were underground pipes and tunnels that brought water everywhere needed. :
Sometimes aqueducts could be really, really long. Sometimes as long as 60 miles.
Romans were the first to fully understand the advantages of arches. Thats why when you see pictures of buildings in rome, most of them have arches. The arches made bridges stronger because they were made out of stones called voussoirs.
They controlled 1/5 of mankind by killing over 80,000 people
Since Rome had the first established and professional army,50% of Rome's money was spent on their army.
How did geography impact the development of ancient Rome ?
The three plains are the Tuscan plains which were drained by the Po river somehow, were fertile farming region. That meant that their farms and crops were in good shape.(Weebly).
In Rome, there were a lot of rivers,therefore, the Romans could trade with far places and could go to a lot more places, for things like trading...and not much else.(Weebly)
They had very fertile land so ,their crops grew very easily, althoughthey didn't have enough land to supply their population.
Since, they had so many crops and farms, they made or cooked so many things such as, rye bread, olives, asperagus, barley grapes, etc
Since the Romans lived on a peninsula, they were an easier target and could very easily get attacked.
Romans used volcanic ash as a resource (because they were surrounded by a lot of volcanos) to make concrete for the aqueducts.
What was daily life like for ancient Romans ?
The emperor was the main law source, and it was said that " whatever phases the emperor is law."
Senates were basically the highest place you can be in the social class than being the emperor
Even though roman laws were strict, there were a lot of criminals.
The most common crimes were stealing,assault, and murder.
Roman police kept an eye on richer neighborhoods but rarely patrolled the poorer sections of the city
some streets were so dangerous that they were closed at night.
Roman law was not equal, the poor got harsher punishment while the rich got punishments that weren't as hard.
In roman religion, if someone was injured, they would go to a shrine and put and offering in the shape of the body part that needed to be cured
children were home schooled, so boys learned how to manage farms or businesses while girls learned how to cook and take care of babies
Romans did not have forks, therefor they either ate with their hands or spoons
Women were basically not citizens, because they fell into their own category.
women did not have any rights, they were mostly just used to cook, clean, and make children to start the cycle again.
After Rome became an empire, women had more rights. They could vote, they could have businesses, they could own land , free slaves, and have a paying job although they were still considered under the guardianship of a father or a grandfather
In Rome, when you got married, you got married for the rest of your life, there were no divorces
The marriage of two children was also the joining of two families. You couldn't marry any relative, even if it were your third or fourth cousin.
At birth children are given a locket called a bulla. Girl wore their bulla until their wedding night.
If you commited a huge crime your punishment could have been becoming a slave
Slave children could be adopted into roman families and be treated like any other roman child.
