  • Geography and Location of Ancient Rome
  • Myth of Romulus and Remus
  • Influence of Etruscan Engineering
  • The ancient city of Rome is located on what's called a peninsula. A peninsula is a body of land surrounded by water on three sides. The peninsula Rome is located on is Italy. Some people can remember Italy by its shape. Some people claim it looks like a boot kicking a soccer ball. Rome is very mountainous and contains two rivers.
  • Influence of Etruscan Sports
  • The myth of Romulus and Remus is very well known to this day. It all starts with a princess having twins, Romulus and Remus. However, their uncle decides he wants them dead. He sends the two twins floating down a river in a carriage. They are found floating in the river by a wolf! The wolf saves them and raises them as if they were her own. Someday the twins were found by an old man. When they grew up they wanted to name a town but couldn't decide. So they fought, Remus died and Romulus obviously won. That's how Rome got its name.
  • Influence of Greek Architecture
  • Rome is based on Etruscan and Greek engineering. One of the many things they took from the Etruscans is an Aqueduct. An aqueduct is like a bridge in a way. It is always put into a river or body of water. Once again that is just one of many engineering items the Romans stole from the Etruscans.
  • Influence of Greek Art, Religion, and Writing
  • Two sports I'm going to talk about are Gladiator Fighting and Chariot Racing. These two Etruscan sports had a very big influence on Roman sporting events. Gladiator fighting includes Gladiators and fighting, obviously. Gladiator fighting was a fight to the death. Sometimes, it would even involve a panther or lion. Chariot racing was raced with one horse or a team of horses but was also very deadly,
  • The "arch" in buildings was a huge thing based on Greek architecture. It is very common to see arches in various different buildings. Another big thing is columns. The three Greek columns are a big influence worldwide but were used a lot more in Rome. These made Rome look like Greece but in a parallel universe.
  • Some people say they can't tell if ancient Greek and Roman art are Greek or Roman. And for that reason, the art made by Greeks and Romans is called Greco-Roman art. The Romans were very influenced by Greek art. Roman writing looks very similar to Greek writing. However, Roman writing was a little bit different and they used Roman Numerals. Greek religion was passed on to Romans but something changed. The names of Greek Gods and Goddesses.
