    1. 1. THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF ANCIENT ROME A VIRTUAL FIELDTRIP
    2. 2. AVE OR HELLO. I AM THE ROMAN POET VIRGIL. I COMPOSED MANY WORKS DURING MY LIFETIME BUT MY MOST FAMOUS IS PROBABLY THE AENEID. THE AENEID WAS A POEM ABOUT THE FOUNDING OF ROME, WHICH TRACES THE HISTORY OF OUR GREAT EMPIRE ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE TROJAN WAR. THE ROMAN EMPIRE INFLUENCED WESTERN CIVILIZATION IN MANY WAYS. TODAY I AM HERE TO GUIDE YOU ON YOUR TOUR OF THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF ANCIENT ROME. SOME OF WHAT YOU SEE MIGHT LOOK FAMILIAR, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE VISITED YOUR OWN CAPITAL CITY WASHINGTON, D.C. DIES FELICES! THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF ANCIENT ROME
    3. 3. YOU MAY HAVE NOTICED MY LATIN PHRASES. THAT IS BECAUSE LATIN AND GREEK WERE THE LANGUAGES OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. MOST PEOPLE IN THE WESTERN HALF OF THE EMPIRE SPOKE LATIN WHILE THE EASTERN HALF SPOKE GREEK. MUCH LATER ON, AFTER ROME HAD FALLEN, OTHER LANGUAGES WOULD DEVELOP FROM LATIN LIKE FRENCH, SPANISH, AND ITALIAN. THESE LANGUAGES ARE CALLED ROMANCE LANGUAGES BECAUSE THEY WERE ALL HEAVILY INFLUENCED BY THE LATIN SPEAKING ROMANS. CHECK OUT MY MAP OF THE ROMANCE LANGUAGES. THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF ANCIENT ROME: ROMANCE LANGUAGES
    4. 4. TRAVEL BY ROMAN ROADS TO THE CITY OF ROME THE ROADS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE STILL CRISS CROSS EUROPE TODAY. THEY WERE THE MOST EXTENSIVE ROAD SYSTEM IN THE ANCIENT WORLD. NEWS, MONEY, AND EVEN RELIGIONS TRAVELED UP AND DOWN THE EMPIRE ON ROMAN ROADS LIKE THE APPIAN WAY CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO TO TAKE A SIDE TRIP AND EXPLORE THE ROMAN ROADS OF GREAT BRITAIN.
    5. 5. WELCOME TO TO THE CITY OF ROME HEY LOOK! ALL ROADS REALLY DO LEAD TO ROME. ENTER THE CITY BY CLICKING TO THE NEXT PAGE.
    6. 6. OUR FIRST STOP IS THE PANTHEON THE PANTHEON STILL STANDS IN THE CITY OF ROME TODAY. IT WAS BUILT AS A TEMPLE DEDICATED NOT TO ONE GOD, BUT TO ALL THE GODS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. FOR OVER 1400 YEARS THE DOME OF THE PANTHEON WAS THE LARGEST FREE STANDING CONCRETE DOME IN THE WORLD! Click on the model of the Pantheon to view a panorama of the interior.
    7. 7. THE PANTHEON THE ROMANS USED CONCRETE TO CONSTRUCT MANY OF THEIR GREATEST BUILDINGS AND MONUMENTS. THE CONCRETE OF THE PANTHEON’S DOME IS SPECIAL BECAUSE IT IS MIXED WITH A MATERIAL CALLED PUMICE TO MAKE IT LIGHTER IN WEIGHT THE CLOSER IT IS TO THE TOP. ITS COMPLEX ENGINEERING IS ONE REASON WHY THE BUILDING STILL STANDS TODAY ALMOST 1900 YEARS LATER. Question 1 The Roman temple known as the Pantheon was built to honor the greatest of the Roman Gods, Jupiter.
    8. 8. NEXT STOP IS THE COLOSSEUM THE COLOSSEUM STILL STANDS IN THE CITY OF ROME TODAY. WHAT WENT ON INSIDE AT THE HEIGHT OF THE EMPIRE? CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO FIND OUT!
    9. 9. THE COLOSSEUM THE DESIGN OF THE COLOSSEUM WITH ITS ROWS OF SEATS ANGLED TOWARDS THE CENTER SHOULD LOOK FAMILIAR TO ANYONE WHO HAS VISITED A SPORTS STADIUM TODAY. ONE BIG DIFFERENCE: ADMISSION TO THE COLOSSEUM WAS FREE! Question 2 On special occasions the Romans would flood the floor of the Colosseum to reenact famous naval battles.
    10. 10. COMING UP IS THE FORUM NOT FAR FROM THE PANTHEON IS THE CENTER OF ROME AND HER EMPIRE, THE FORUM. THE FORUM WAS BEGUN BY JULIUS CAESAR AND EXPANDED BY LATER RULERS. SOME OF THE MOST FAMOUS MONUMENTS OF ANCIENT ROME WERE LOCATED THERE. Click on the picture of the forum for a panoramic view of how it looks today.
    11. 11. THE FORUM-ROMAN LAW THE LAWS OF ANCIENT ROME WERE ALSO DISPLAYED IN THE FORUM. THEY WERE WRITTEN IN LATIN (THE LANGAUGE OF ANCIENT ROME) ON TWELVE LARGE TABLETS FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. SOME OF THE PRINCIPLES OF ROMAN LAW WRITTEN ON THE TWELVE TABLES APPEAR IN OUR OWN LAW CODE. THE PRINCIPLES INCLUDED: 1. All citizens had the right to equal treatment under the law. 2. A person was considered innocent until proven guilty. 3. The burden of proof rested with the accuser rather than the accused. 4. You could only be punished for actions, not thoughts. 5. Any law that seemed unreasonable or grossly unfair could be set aside COMPARE THE FOUR PRINCIPALS OF ROMAN LAW TO SELECTIONS YOUR OWN CONSITUTION. CAN YOU FIND ONE SIMILARITY?
    12. 12. THE ARCH DID YOU NOTICE THE ARCHES ON MANY OF THE BUILDINGS AROUND YOU DURING YOUR TRIP THROUGH THE FORUM? ROMAN ENGINEERS WERE FAMOUS FOR THE USE OF THE ARCH. THROUGH THE USE OF ARCHES THEY COULD CONSTRUCT MORE IMPRESSIVE BUILDINGS THAN MANY CIVIILIZATIONS WHO HAD COME BEFORE OR AFTER. Question 3 How many arches did you see on the Arch of Septimius Severus?
    13. 13. AQUEDUCTS ARCHES ALSO SUPPORTED THE AQUEDUCTS OF ANCIENT ROME. AQUEDUCTS WERE A SYSTEM OF BRIDGES AND TUNNELS THAT CARRIED FRESH WATER FROM THE MOUNTAINS TO THE CITIES OF ANCIENT ROME. ROMAN AQUEDUCTS STILL STURVIVE ALL OVER EUROPE TODAY. Lets follow the path of this aqueduct from the mountains into the cities of the Empire…Click the forward button to continue.
    14. 14. OUR LAST STOP IS A ROMAN BATH THE ROMANS BELIEVED VERY STRONGLY IN PUBLIC HYGIENE. THE CREATED PUBLIC BATHS AND EVEN SEWER SYSTEMS THROUGH OUT THEIR EMPIRE. CLICK THE PICTURE BELOW TO EXPLORE A ROMAN BATH IN THE CITY OF BATH, ENGLAND.
    15. 15. ROMAN BATH ART THE PUBLIC BATHS OF ROMAN CITIES WERE HIGHLY DECORATED. MANY CONTAINED FRESCOS, MOSIACS, AND BAS-RELIEFS. SOME EVEN SURVIVE FOR YOU TO EXAMINE TODAY. Frescos are wall-paintings. Many wealthy Romans had frescos painted through out their homes. The best examples we have today are from the Roman city of Pompeii.
    16. 16. POST FIELD TRIP ACTIVITY Now its your turn! In three paragraphs describe three ways the Roman Empire has influenced our own society today. Think about art, architecture, literature or government to help get you started. Remember, a paragraph is 4-6 sentences. Bona Fortuna!
