Hello my name is Tessa, today we are going to be learning about the Early Romans and their neighbors
Let's get to it. I need to get my learning on!!!
Hi I am Aaliyah, Did you know that Historians have tried to discover the truth about the founding of Rome.No one really knows who Rome's first king was.We do know that the first Romans were Latins. The Latins were one of several groups who had invaded Italy sometime before 1000 B.C.E.
No, I did Not know that Aaliyah, Do you know more?
The Romans learned many techniques about engineering, or the science of building, from the Etruscan. They used arches to build huge public works,including bridges,stadiums, and aqueducts
OK I will let Jeff do the talking.
That's cool I did not know that but can somebody tell me about The Influence of Etruscan Sporting Events.
OK calm down Brooke, Romans Adopted two bloody Etruscan sporting events. The first was slave fighting, The Etruscan custom was to stage slave fighting during funerals.
OK,The Etruscan also enjoyed watching chariot races.The drivers, or charioteers,were strapped to their chariots.
Cool tell me more
Let me tell you about The Influence of Greek Art, Both Etruscan's and the Romans admired Greek Pottery,painting,and sculpture. The Romans got some Greek ideas from Etruscan's. They borrowed other ideas directly from the Greeks.
Greek pottery was valued throughout the Mediterranean world for its usefulness and beauty.
Hope your ready for the last two pieces of information Writing and Architecture, here it goes, ARCHITECTURE: The Greeks built marble temples as homes for their gods,temples like the Parthenon had stately columns that added to their beauty.
WRITING:The Greek's use of their alphabet had more direct influence on Roman life,Like Greek's wrote in all capital letters.
