Ancient Rome

Ancient Rome was originally an Italic settlement dating from the 8th century BC that grew into the
city of Rome and which subsequently gave its name to the empire over which it ruled and to the
widespread civilisation it developed. The Roman empire expanded to become one of the largest
empires in the ancient world, though still ruled from the city, with an estimated 50 to 90 million
inhabitants and covering 5.0 million square kilometres at its height in AD 117.
In its many centuries of existence, the Roman state evolved from a monarchy to a classical
republic and then to an increasingly autocratic empire. Through conquest and assimilation, it
came to dominate the Mediterranean region and then Western Europe, Asia Minor, North Africa,
and parts of Northern and Eastern Europe. It is often grouped into classical antiquity together
with ancient Greece, and their similar cultures and societies are known as the Greco-Roman
Ancient Roman civilisation has contributed to modern government, law, politics, engineering, art,
literature, architecture, technology, warfare, religion, language and society. Rome
professionalised and expanded its military and created a system of government called res
publica, the inspiration for modern republics such as the United States and France. It achieved
impressive technological and architectural feats, such as the construction of an extensive system
of aqueducts and roads, as well as the construction of large monuments, palaces, and public
