The Location and Geography of Rome
The Myth of Romulus and Remus
The Etruscan Influence of Engineering on the Romans
Rome is on the Italian peninsula in Europe. Rome is also southwest of the Tiber River.
The Etruscan Influence of Sports on the Romans
The myth of Romulus and Remus is about twins that are raised by wolves. These wild brothers were found and brought back to the kingdom to be princes. In a fight Romulus kills Remus over naming Rome.
The Greek Influence of Architecture on the Romans
The Etruscan's influenced Roman engineering greatly. One example would be the cuniculus which helped the Romans irrigate the land in a way that doesn't take up much room that you can see. Another more obvious influence is the arch which is almost every doorway in Rome that lasts for many many years.
The Greek Influence of Writing, Art, and Religion on the Romans
The Etruscan's gave the Romans many different sports and one was slave fighting where two slaves would fight to the death. Another sport was chariot racing where they raced carts and horses around which was very deadly. They also had gladiator fighting with many other kinds of battles in the Colosseum.
The Greeks influenced the Romans greatly in architecture. The Greeks gave the Romans the idea of the columns which you see in almost every Roman building. The Greeks also helped with the Colosseum because the Romans pretty much built two Greek theaters together.
The main basis of art, writing, and religion came from the Greeks. Proof of this is that most of the Roman and Greek gods are the same but with different names. The Romans also used all capital letters in their writing.
