  31. 31. What I learned: <ul><li>The most important thing I learned about in Ancient Rome was the Social structure and government. I believe that social structure was important due to the different way each class had been treated. I also believe that social structure was important due to the way the people lived, survived, and the way they found and made money. </li></ul><ul><li>I also believe that government was important because of the way Rome was run and by the leaders that Rome had consisted of. I was most intrigued by the way Rome was run because I didn’t believe in all the choices that the leaders or kings had made. I also believe that the rulers of Ancient Rome had as big part to do with the way Rome was built. Many of the rulers in Rome had viewed the way to rule the empire in a different point of view. </li></ul><ul><li>This is what I believed was the most important idea in Ancient Rome. </li></ul>
