An Introduction to Rome
4
DID YOU KNOW THAT YOU ALREADY KNOW A LOT ABOUT
ANCIENT ROME?
  • WELL ITS TRUE!

5
DOES ANYTHING LOOK FAMILIAR?
6
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS BEFORE?
7
ARE WE STUDYING GREECE AGAIN?
8
WHY DO WE STUDY ANCIENT ROME?
  • We study the Romans because
  • They made very important contributions in
    architecture and government.
  • Our own culture reflects parts of Ancient Roman
    culture.
  • Language and art

9
WHERE ON EARTH IS ROME?
10
WHY IS THE GEOGRAPHY OF ROME IMPORTANT?
  • Rome, with its central location on the Italian
    peninsula, was able to extend its influence over
    the entire Mediterranean.

11
THE GEOGRAPHY OF ROME
The Alps
ROME
Greece
Egypt
12
HOW DID GEOGRAPHY HELP THE ROMANS?
  • Located in the center of the Mediterranean
  • Far away from eastern empires, but accessible
    from Europe
  • Large amount of fertile land
  • Alps (Mts.) provided natural protection.
  • Mediterranean Sea Gave protection, allowed for
    trade.
  • Basically, Romes place in the world kept it safe
  • from harm, but allowed it to interact with
  • other people.

13
TRADE AND INFLUENCE
14
LETS RECAP..
15
MYTHS AND LEGENDS
  • Just like the Greeks, the Romans used myths and
    legends to explain the history of their region.
  • Why do you think people believed these stories in
    ancient Rome?

16
Myths and Legends
  • Most of the myths and legends in ancient Rome
    centered around their gods and goddesses.
  • They were polytheistic!

17
THE LEGEND OF ROMULUS AND REMUS
18
  • According to Roman legend a princess named Rhea
    Sylvia had twin boys by Mars, the god of war. A
    jealous uncle who had stolen the throne from her
    father ordered her twins to be drowned in the
    Tiber River.

19
  • Fortunately, a servant had pity on the twins and
    placed them in a basket. Eventually, the basket
    washed onto the shore and the twins were
    discovered by a female wolf. The wolf nursed and
    protected the babies for a short time before they
    were found by a shepherd. The shepherd then
    raised the twins.

20
  • When Romulus and Remus became adults, they
    decided to found (or set up) a city where the
    wolf had discovered them. The brothers fought
    over exactly where the city should be built, and
    as a result, Remus was killed by his brother.
    Without Remus, Romulus became the sole founder of
    the new city and named it Rome. The date given
    for the founding of Rome was 753 BC.

21
BELIEVE IT, OR NOT?
  1. What parts of the story seem too unlikely to be
    true?
  2. If the legend does not explain how the city was
    really founded, why do you think Rome was built?

22
  • Although the Legend of Romulus and Remus
  • makes it seem as if Rome was built in a day, the
  • truth is probably very different.
  • It is more likely that
  • Groups, like the Latins, settled along the Tiber
    river in 1000 B.C.
  • In 600 B.C. Greek settlers established several
    cities ? trade spread of ideas
  • In order to be safer from invasions, the
    settlements joined together as one.

23
  • However, regardless of how Rome was founded,
    thank goodness for the contributions of the
    Ancient Romans!
  • Architecture, government, law, art, language,
    calendar, etc.
