Storyboard Text

  • By the year 550, The Roman Empire had collapsed, leaving only small bits and the culture throughout Europe, such as the walk roads they had built.
  • The political and cultural landscape of Europe changed greatly after the fall of Rome.
  • In 476 C.E. Romulus, the last of the Roman emperors in the west, was overthrown by the Germanic leader Odoacer, who became the first Barbarian to rule in Rome. The order that the Roman Empire had brought to western Europe for 1000 years was no more.
  • In 330 C.E., he split the empire into two parts: the western half centered in Rome and the eastern half centered in Constantinople, a city he named after himself.
  • The Visigoths looted, burned, and pillaged their way through the city, leaving a wake of destruction wherever they went. The plundering continued for three days. For the first time in nearly a millennium, the city of Rome was in the hands of someone other than the Romans. This was the first time that the city of Rome was sacked, but by no means the last.
  • Now Rome is a new and better society for new people to come in.
