Transcript of Ancient Rome: Climate

Bibliography Ancient Rome's climate is around the same as
it is in Rome today. In the summer it is hot, dry, and humid. As you travel farther up North it starts to cool off and it becomes less humid. In the Winter it is very wet. Ancient Rome has snow for half of their winter. On average they get about 4cm of snow. Climate of Ancient Rome Ancient Rome has the best environment
in its time. There is fresh soil for
growing crops, water from the Tiber River and the Mediterranean Sea that provided life for plants, animals, humans, and a forest. In the forest there were Timber trees that allowed Romans to build and trade, there was also stones for making concrete to construct temples, or vast outdoor arenas. Ancient Rome's Environment Fires Fires were common in ancient Rome because of the many wooden buildings which in the hot summers would be like dry timber. The people also used open flames in their cooking and in their oil lamps. Shops also had many flammable materials that could burst into flame spontaneously, especially in the hot summer months.

For there to be shops and items to sell there needed to be material to build from. The Romans used the trees and stone from the forest and water from the Mediterranean Sea. The valleys that Rome was built on provided protection from war, and invaders. Country Life The farms are where all the grain and crops are grown. In the farms there are open fields, good soil, streams and rivers to provide water and nutrients to the plants. If there wasn`t a farm to grow crops it would be hard for the Romans to survive since there wouldn`t be any food. Facts - Ancient Rome gets about 30inches (750 mm) of rain every year.
- The average temperature is 75 degrees F. (24 degrees C.)
-Rome's 20m above the sea
- The climate is called ``Temperate`` because of latitude and how close it is to the sea.
- The temperature can drop 20 degrees from the wind Romes Valleys Droughts Rome suffered fierce droughts in the summer because the water was wasted from evaporation. In the Summers, Rome didn't get any rain because it only came in the winter. The Romans used the water from the Tiber River to survive the dreadful months. Mountains and Hills The city of ancient Rome was found on seven hills. These hills were made of harden rocky sponge. Along the hills there were mountains. The mountains contained resources such as lead, silver, and iron. Agriculture In Ancient Rome the slaves were the ones that managed the farms. There, they grew olives, grapes, barley, peaches, cherries, plums and walnuts. There was never a problem with feeding the Romans because of there fertile ground that they could grow crops and the slaves making sure the crops were watered. As the population grew it did become harder to feed because of how many people there were. In the Winter and Summer, the weather was hard on the crops because it would destroy the plants, and it was hard on the farmers because it was a lot of work to fix. Why was it so hot there? Ancient Rome had a Mediterranean climate. This means that its overall climate was much warmer by a body of water nearby. The rain created fertile soil, which was good for farming. Rome's highest tempeture for the Summer was 30 degrees C while the lowest was 22 degrees C. The winter tempeture's were 7 degrees C to 10 degrees C. Facts 90% of Romans believed Farming was the only way to live Farming was the number one thing in Rome Farmers planted in spring and harvested in the fall. Does Anyone Have Any Questions on Ancient Romes Climate and Environment?? Similarities Between Ancient Rome's Environment and Climate, and Cranbrook's Environment and Climate. Ancient Rome has valleys and mountains just like today in Cranbrook. They help keep invaders out of the city and to protect from chaotic weather. Forests contained resources in Ancient Rome as it does for humans in Cranbrook today. They hold trees for shelter and other resources. Differences Between Ancitent Romes Climate and Environment and Cranbrooks Environment and Climate In the winter Cranbrook recieves around 139.9cm of snow and Rome recieves only 4cm on snow. Ancient Rome is closer to a sea and the equater but Cranbrook is not close to either one.
