Contributions of the Romans
The first contributions of the Romans was science. Some examples of this is Ptolemy who map over 1000 stars. He also studied the motion of planets and stars and created a rule to explain their movements. The Roman developed practical engineering skills. They built roads that connected Rome to every part of the empire. Roman engineers supplied cites with fresh water using aqueducts. One Roman-built aqueduct in Segovia, Spain, is still used today-nearly 1900 years after it was completed. We still use Roman numerals today.

The second contributions is literature. Poet Virgil and his epic poem, the Aeneid, tells the story of the founding of Roman. Horace wrote satires. These works poked fun at human weaknesses, much like comedians do today. Horace wrote odes or poems that express strong emotions about life. Odes are still around today

The third Roman contribution is art and architecture. Some examples of this is arches in bridges, aqueducts, and buildings. They also created the method of vaults using this method they created domes. They were masters of concrete. One famous concrete building was the Colosseum. They also made temples and the oldest undamaged building in the world today is the Pantheon.
