Transcript: The Roman Empire Roman Army The Romans had many battle tactics. Here are a few. Shield-to-shield- Also known as the "tortoise" in this formation soldiers other than the first row were to stand with their shields over head. The first or front row of soldiers were to hold their shields to their sides. This created a "shell" of armor protecting the infantry from projectiles. Cannae- Also known as the "weak center" in this formation soldiers left a weak central battle line tempting the enemy to strike there. But when they did they had forgotten the rest of the battle line was strong. Therefore, when the enemy was in their league, the rest of the battle line enveloped them. Wedge- This very common defense strategy was when soldiers formed a triangular structure then used this to thrust small groups into the enemy with a strong impact also pushing the enemy troops behind. Zama- Another very interesting Roman tactic also known as the "maniple channel strategy" was when there were channels made between the legions or maniples. This commonly confused the enemy as to which maniple to attack first. Weapons Sword- One of the most common ancient weapons used by the Romans. It was a long, pointed and double-edged Iberian weapon called the "Spanish sword." *Ceasar carried one special sword called a "Gladius." Dagger- A fighting knife with a sharp point made of copper alloy or iron. Pilum- Ancient short-range assault instrument that resembled a heavy javelin with a pyramidal head. Shield- Roman shields were oval, rectangular or hexagonal. They were typically made of thick wood bordered with copper alloy or iron. Spear- Mainly three kinds of spears were used by ancient Roman soldiers: light javelins, thrusting spears and two-handed lances. Roman Emperors Nero Birth date: December 15, 37 Death date: June 09, 68 Place of birth: Antium, Italy Summary: Nero discouraged luxury, reduced the taxes, and increased the authority of the Senate. Nero gained throne as a result of his mother murdering all other oppositon. Nero commited many crimes during his reign but possibly the worst was the burning of Rome. It is unknown whether Nero was responsible for its burning or not. Once the fire had come to an end after six days Nero blamed the Christians. He became the first to persicute the Christians. Julius Ceasar Birth date: July 12 or 13, 100 B.C. Death date: 44 B.C. Place of birth: Rome, Italy Summary: Ceasar wasn't really an emperor. He was considered a "Dictator perpetuus" (Latin for dictator in perpetuity.) Aside from being dictator and strategic military leader Ceasar was also a general, a statesman, a lawgiver, a jurist, an orator, a poet, a historian, a philologer, a mathematician, and an architect. Julius Caesar was also distinguished as an author, and wrote several works which related the history of the first seven years of the Gallic War and the history of the Civil War. Roman Accomplishments Roman Art & Literature The Romans developed Roman numerals (hence the name!) This is significant because it is widely used across the United States and the world! They're used in the Super Bowl, movie titles, and in the army corps. Romans were noticeably interested in one art called "mosaic" art. This type of art was created by using small pieces of tile, glass or stone. The pieces were arranged on a smooth surface, such as a wall to form a pattern. These patterns would depict gods, heroes, and even basic Roman life. Roman literature including drama, poetry and prose became popular during the 240's B.C. this period is known as the "Golden Age of Roman drama." Roman Architecture The Romans invented the technology for concrete, aqueducts, arches and roads. When a city was conquered, roads were constructed to connect it to Rome, the capitol of the empire. Milestones were installed on the side of the road informing a traveler the distance to be covered to reach Rome. Roman aqueducts were built to carry water from the springs or rivers to the public baths and fountains. These baths had a plumbing system to drain the dirty water. Aqueducts were built all across the vast Roman Empire and some are still functioning today. Roman Laws Romans formulated many of the laws multiple countries use today. Roman laws were applicable to any and all Romans, irrespective of his place in society. Roman laws were written on metal tables and were organized into twelve sections. Therefore, they were known as the "Twelve Tables." These tables were displayed at the various Roman forums or meeting places in all the Roman cities. Examples of Roman Laws: A person is innocent until proven guilty If you have summons from the court, you are expected to attend the court. Or else, you could be taken by force to the court. Capital punishment would be imposed on a person found guilty of giving false witness. No one is allowed to hold meetings after nightfall. Roman Culture Roman Mythology Long before the emergence of Christianity, Roman mythology was greatly influenced by
Transcript: Fall of the Roman Empire Decline in Morals and Values Public Health Even during PaxRomana there were 32,000 prostitutes in Rome. Emperors like Caligula and Nero became infamous for wasting money on lavish parties where guests drank and ate until they became sick. The most popular amusement was watching the gladiatorial combats in the Colosseum. Unemployment THE FINAL BLOWS Many people would trade their goods for other goods instead of trading coins. Inflation Farmers would compete to sell the best crops for as little as possible. Which eventualy leaded to other farmers losing their farms or selling them. This would leave then unemployed. Public health was very bad and the water had been transported through lead pipes which caused diseases.
Transcript: The Roman Empire’s economy was mainly based on slavery(“Silver”). Roman economic fortunes were dominated by agriculture and trade and a small portion of industry. The agriculture grown was various grains, olives, and rock. Some of the important products were olive oil and wine. Instead of paying a tax, most farmers would donate surplus crops to the government. Egypt, Sicily and Tunisia in North Africa were very important in making and delivering grain to Rome. If the merchants failed to ship the grain or certain materials it would lead to either deportation or execution. There main industry work was mining. The things they mined were stone and metal. The metal was for their weapons and the stone was for building projects Many of their goods were traded along the road instead of the sea.Their more expensive goods like food, precious metals, stones and building supplies were shipped by water. Trading by land was only good if the goods were going short distances or if the trade cargo was small. The Romans lived off these items. Importers were among the wealthiest citizens of the empire. Most coins such as brass, bronze, copper, silver and gold were distributed under strict rules of weights, sizes, value, and metal composition Economy Any Questions? The art the Romans built were not just typical things you gaze at, they created them for more then that. The Romans believed in many Gods. Marble was built into houses of wealthy The senate was provincial membership which means that about one half of the senators were non-Roman. The following Emperor Marcus Aurelius (121-180) chose to strengthen their positions and followed Augustus’ creation “Pax Romana.” When an Emperor named Commodus came to rule he was known for his dictatorial behavior which weakened the people with disillusionment. Augustus wanted to reshape and justify the economy with law and ordered “Pax Romana,” (Roman peace) which was nearly a two-hundred year period of peace. He preserved the Republican institution by reassembling the Senate. He removed unworthy senators who strengthened the government power from one thousand to six hundred Under the first emperor of Rome, Augustus Caesar, Latin Literature began to reach new heights. Under his ruling famous Roman poets and authors such as Virgil and Ovid left their mark. Some of the most noticeable writers at this time were Livy, Virgil, and Horace. Livy is famous for his writing of history of the Roman Empire from the beginning to end. Architecture The difference between the old Roman Empire and the new is that the people were equal before the expansion of the empire, and when the people wanted to be different they started dressing differently and buying fancier and fancier amenities. The Roman Empire is the base foundation of modern architecture to this day. The art of the Roman Empire was said to have stopped at the beginning of the ruling of Constantine and the reign of Christianity, and from then on started the art era of Constantinople in AD 330. copy paste branches if you need more.... The prayer of Roman's was odd because they believed God would only answer you with a sacrifice a type of animal to have their prayer answered. As soon as the Roman Empire began to grow increasingly, the times of equality were over; the rich separated themselves by showing that they were different. The people built these monuments not to show they could do what others couldn’t, they build them with purpose. The Roman Empire The letters J and U were not present if a word had these letters it would be replaced. For example, the name JULIUS would be spelled IVLIVS, the reason why is because the letter J was replaced with the letter I and the letter U was replaced with the letter V. Roman literature under the Roman Empire during A.D. 14-476 had many more writers introduced. There was M. Annaeus Lucanus who wrote the epic Pharsalia, which he finished in ten books. The most valuable industry of all was mining The Colosseum was a work of art of structure supported on an intertwining structure of routes, stairways, and ramps, all being able to support forty to fifty thousand people From that tragedy sprouted up two great rulers named Diocletion (c.245-c.316) and Constantine (d.337) both of which increased the Authoritarianism and totalitarianism. The Romans left many legacies for future generations including Latin Literature and architecture, thus modern Western civilization has been greatly influenced The Romans were Christians, but the fact that Christians only believed in one God was odd for them. Literature Quintus Curtius Rufus wrote about the account of the deeds of Alexander the Great in about ten books The main currencies in the time period were miscellaneous good such as food and cloth. Even the taxes of farmers were goods meaning extra grain, rice, or corn when the payments are due.

Though they continued to claim more power for themselves, these emperors treated the ruling classes with respect; were capable & tolerant; built important public works, such as roads & aqueducts; & adopted policies that were helpful to the empire. Further expansion of the empire: During the Early Empire, Rome expanded farther, becoming one of the largest states up to that time, with more than 50 million subjects. Cities were important in administering the empire & spreading Roman culture, which mixed with Greek culture to produce a Greco-Roman civilization. Economy & Society: Trade: The peaceful conditions of the Early Empire led to an increase of prosperity through trade. Grain was imported to feed the Roman populace, & luxary items were imported from as far away as China. Farming: The basis of Roman prosperity remained farming. agriculture in southern & central Italy was dominated by large, slave-worked estates. Small farms survived in northen Italy. Architecture: The Romans also adopted Greek architectural styles but added curved forms, such as the arch, vault, and dome. They used concrete to construct huge buildings beyond the abilities of the Greeks. Art: The Romans adopted a number of features of Greek art & produced many copies of Greek status, though their own statues tended to be more realistic. Engineering Projects: the Romans were superb builders, constructing a 50, 000-mile network of roads & bridges, as well as aqueducts to provide fresh water for Rome.
