What I know about Rome, is not much. But what I do know is pretty basic but somewhat informal.

1. Rome had battles to the death between gladiatiors in a large arena called a colloseum. Some still stand in present Rome today.

2. Also, rich Romans liked to buy very esquisite and pricey spices from the chinese. When they ate, they enjoyed none the less than a feast.

I don't know alot about Rome, but I am anxious to learn much more in the future of this unit...

See ya!

OK, 2 things I am going to tell you are very sort of simple well, I already know that circus Maximus was a great warrior. I watched a movie with this Rome charector in it. The movie was really good my favorite part was in the Colosseum when they fought to get out. Ok, I am getting of task I know how the Rome thing started with two little boys getting tossed into the Tiber River and were raised by wolves and they grew up and mad their own cities. Romulus built a bigger one and Remus didn't like that so he went over his wall and got killed

Hi Mr.Klumper
The first thing that I learned from this website was that after the Romans met people from greece and Egypt, Romans started wearing tunic under their wool robes. Another thing that I learned was that the more money they had, the better food they had to eat.

Alexander "the great" Wilde Pd. 3 said...

1 Romans loved watching other people die. They thought that it was as fun to watch as going to horror movies or watching Cops on TV is fun. They also believed that their gods liked gladiatorial fights, so that going to the fights was a sort of religious experience as well as being fun.

2.The most common games were dice games. Where you threw the dice and bet on the results. These were essentially gambling games. But the Romans also played marbles and knucklebones (the vertebrae of sheep or goats).

Katy 8Ternus said...
