  12. 12. Aqueducts The aqueducts are 2,000 years old punt du guard. It goes over the guard river bridge in France. It is a part of an aqueduct a structure for carrying water. The engineers who designed it had to make sure the water flowed slightly down hill the whole way along its 31 mile(50 km) route from the spring source to the town of Nimes. It put fresh water in the roman village. It put 250 million gallons of water in Rome. The Mediterranean Sea is what gave them all their fresh water in the roman village. That is why they have such good watered plants and good crops on their farm because of the aqueducts. The roman's were great water engineers. They designed aqueducts raised channels to carry water from steams in far away hills and mountains to the city. The richest roman homes were supplied with consent running water carried in lead pipes.

Sooner or later all towns and cities of the empire were connected by an elaborate road system which meant that from any place within the empire were you could travel to Rome by road-leading to the famous phrase “All roads lead to Rome.” The Romans roads lead to Rome. The Romans roads were called via (plural of the singular term via) in Latin. My source: Ancient Rome history for kids By: Domonique F. Insert Artifact Picture Here Back to Geography Exhibit
  15. 15. Entertainment Rome people played dice games which we probably still do today. A favorite game for children and adults was played with knuckle bones from sheep. Perhaps the most exciting entertainment was chariot racing in the stadium. It was a dangerous sport with chariots often crashing. The theaters were popular and built for large audiences. There were comedies and serious plays, sketches with singing and dancing and a sort of ballet called a pantomimes. The roman's particularly enjoyed the entertainment in the amphitheater. They watched trained fighters called gladiators, kill each other for sport. Gladiators also fought wild animals. In Rome a popular activity was going to the Coliseum. The Coliseum was a huge theater in Rome. Over 50,000 people could sit in it. Community events, such as plays, games and fights were held there.

  18. 18. Water features The Romans were surrounded by the Mediterranean sea also the Black sea. It was also by the Atlantic ocean. Since there was so many countries the med. Sea was blocked. They also traded on it to. So I think they may have used the aqueduct to bring from the seas. Did you know the Mediterranean sea is Latin for the middle of land? The Med. Sea is connected by the Atlantic ocean. The western side of the Med. sea is 4,926 (1,504meters). By: Kaitlynn Insert Artifact Picture Here Back to Geography Exhibit

  20. 20. Entertainment Gladiators To make the fight more interesting for the spectators, each gladiator fought with different weapons. The chariot race scene from the film Ben Hur, chariots could be pulled by four horses or two, the chariots was very light and was only kept steady by the charioteer’s weight. It overturned easily. If this happened, the charioteer’s might be dragged along after the horses for the rest of the race and he would be lucky to survive. Athletic games such as the Greek Olympics were not very popular in Rome. The roman audience gambled heavily on which team would win each race. Like modern pop singers, charioteer's could earn enormous sums of money. The roman people adored them and treated them as horses. Source: Roman People, People of the land, book of Rome.

  21. 21. Ancient Rome Democracy!! Did you know ancient Rome had representative democracy? Representative democracy means a group of people vote for one person to make rules and laws for them! Did you know we still have representative democracy up until today? Did you know only the senators had to be voting all the time? Having a president is like representative democracy because a group of people voted for him or her to make rules and laws for them. Rome had a republican or representative form of government. The Roman aristocrats did not want to give poor men any power to be king they said “no way”! So the leaders of the poor men went on strike. So that’s my story on ancient Rome democracy!!!

  23. 23. Trade The Romans traded on the Mediterranean sea. The Romans traded with Britain for silver and which they used to make jewelry and coins and wool which they used to make clothes. The Romans traded throughout their Empire. By importing goods from other countries they raised their standard of living and were able to have many luxuries. The Romans traded silk and spices and gems with Asia and Africa and the middle east. The Romans also traded oil and meat and grain and marbles. They traded plumbing and public and toilets domes. The Romans traded a lot with other continents a lot with Asia and Africa and middle east. I have a life learning about Rome. The Romans road builders. The road builders in Rome made roads out of stones and cement and pebbles. First they would at the bottom of the trench the Romans put a big layer of stones. Then the broken stone and pebbles and cement and sand to make a firm base. Next cement mixed with broken tiles. After that paving stones for med the surface of the road and these were cut so they fitted together very , very tightly. Finally curb stones at the sides held in the paving stones and made a channel for the water to run away. I bet it took the Romans a long time to make that long of a road. Some of the types of the roads were a simple corduroy and paved and deep and roadbeds and rumble roads. I have a fun time learning about the Romans roads.

  26. 26. Painting Roman art of fresco panting some minor earthquakes. Our first impulse might be to identify the myth that is depicted. By formal elements I mean the component that give the painting its shape contrast color balance or contrast etc. Roman painting which is primarily wall panting on plaster. Ancient roman painting color and techniques. Of the painting which survive from the roman classical world many are frescoes from the area of Campania around Naples. Roman wall panting from the second century ad tracing the origins. The only physical evidence of a city space gives the illusion of deep space. Frescos often showed county or garden scenes or gods and goddesses. Some were incredibly realistic still life pictures showing a bowl of fruit or a wine glass.
