Why was the Roman Empire important?

Posted by Jo Linsdell  |  No comments

Many of the things we do and have originated from the Romans:

Language. The language we use today was developed from the Romans. The Romans wrote and spoke in Latin and many of our words are based on Latin.

The Calendar. Started by Julius Caesar it is based on the Eaths movement around the sun. The names of the months where taken from the names of Roman Gods and rulers. July is named after Julius Caesar himself.

The Romans also gave us:
A legal system and laws
The Census
Straight roads
Central heating
concrete
Aqueducts (bridges for water).
