From the 8th century BC until the 15th century AD, the Roman civilization dominated the western world as one of the the most advanced, enlightened and long-lasting empires in the world.
The Roman Empire's inspirational status in governance, art, science, technology and social structure were highly advanced for their day and helped to form the standard structure of the civilized society we enjoy today. Amazing examples of Roman architecture survive in the 21st century all over the Western world. With their exceptional influence on almost every aspect of our lives, the classic question “What have the Romans ever done for us?” cannot be quickly answered!
