  31. 31. Conclusion <ul><li>I think the most important aspect in Rome was farming. The reason I think this because without farming there would not be any food. The Romans will be forced to trade which wasn’t good for the empire. If the Romans did that their empire will be in danger and eventually fall. This is why I think farming was the most important aspect of Rome. </li></ul>
