Two different types of houses existed in Ancient Rome; large airy houses filled with elegant furniture and an indoor pool and dark cramped houses that carried rats.
Wealthy Romans lived in a splendid marble or stone house that had think walls to keep out the noise of the busy city streets and usually a fountain was located in the middle of Trinclinium to refresh guests with cool fresh water.
Poor Romans lived in apartment buildings with 2 rooms that were located above their shops.
The houses the poor lived in were flammable and had a lack of proper water pipes.
The most important idea I have learned about Ancient Rome on “G.R.A.P.E.S” is “P” political. I chose this because the development of the Roman republic was important to Rome. The Roman republic gave structure and stability to the Roman government. Julius Caesar was an important Emperor that ruled Rome and restored the government. He lowered taxes and and reorganized the calendar.
