Transcript of Europe
One of the ways that European traditions have moved to other countries, is that some immigrants moved to America to build railroads or just to get a better life.
There were also people moving to Europe in the mid- twentieth century, in order to build railroads, work in the coal mines, clean streets, and do the jobs that Europeans did not want to do.
The arrival of families changed the immigrants' attitudes towards religious and cultural values, transplanting honor culture, and modesty standards.

The main cause of Europe's change was the Renaissance.

The laws and governments in Europe came from ancient Greece and Rome.
At first, kings ruled Rome. About 700 B.C., Rome became a republic. (In a republic, people choose their leaders.) Romans voted for members of the Senate and the Roman Senate passed laws. These laws protected citizen's rights and property. The Romans ruled most of Europe until about A.D. 500.
In the mid-1700s, there was another big change in the way people lived. It was a time of new inventions. This period is called the Industrial Revolution. New machines made goods faster and cheaper.
