  • The language spoken by Roman’s was Latin

    • Being the Roman Empire lasted for so long, ample time was available for writing

    • Was derived from the Greek alphabet

    • Latin is where most languages today are derived from

      • J, U and W were added letters by English-speaking people.


  • With the language and alphabet came the literary art that had influenced many.

    • Has been written over the years over and over

    • Many works have been lost

    • Different types of literature have been written

      • Histories

      • Letters

      • Plays

      • Philosophies

      • Poetry


  • Architecture is a crucial reminder of Ancient Rome’s power.

    • Found in the formal of temples and basilicas and in its utilitarian buildings like bridges and aqueducts.

    • Different architectures were meant for different purposes and symbolized different things.


  • Roman technology relates fairly closely to other ancient cultures.

    • Pullies, ropes, winches, wooden structures, etc.

  • Using this technology, they made their empire.

  • They lacked the ability to really move operations.

    • Success was still found in large stone sections to be moved over great distances.


  • Romans worshiped many gods.

    • Believed in “contracts” instead of balance

    • Similar to the Greek religion.

      • Curiosity and interest in other gods made the Romans “adopt” gods into their system of higher powers

  • Emperors were viewed as something of a god.

    • Romans did NOT like when Jews and Christians worshiped only one god


  • For many years, government was led by consuls.

    • Controlled the army, decided on war, and the amount taxes would be, along with other decisions

    • A Senate was there for the consuls like an “advisory board”

      • No women were allowed

  • Generals began to take over government for themselves.

    • They had complete power when away with their army.
