Storyboard Text

  • Panel 1
  • Ancient Rome was built on a hill and is located on the Italian Peninsula in Italy. The Italian Peninsula is located in the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Panel 2
  • The myth of Remus and Romulus is about two brothers. Their uncle Mars, the Roman god of war, didn't want them to become kings so he sent men to drown them in a river but a wolf saved them. Then they made a village and when deciding who would be the ruler of it, they battled and Romulus killed his brother.
  • Panel 3
  • The Romans "borrowed" many ideas about engineering from the Etruscans such as the arch and the cuniculus.  The arch was a clever way to make a secure doorway used in modern life. The cuniculus is an irrigation system used to distribute water to the people of the city.
  • Panel 4
  • The Romans also "borrowed" two very dangerous sports from the Etruscans. One was slave fighting which consisted of as you may have already concluded, two slaves fighting to the death.The other was chariot racing which could also lead to death if the chariot fell over.
  • Panel 5
  • Panel 6
  • If you haven't noticed already, the Romsans seem to "borrow" a lot of stuff including the Greek's columns. The Romans eventually started to use concrete to build bigger buildings like the Parthenon and the Colosseum.
  • Greek art also influenced Roman culture. The Romans liked and used Greek designs so greatly that they called it Greco-Roman. Although the Romans did use the Greeks designs, they also had a very unique style of their own.
