My Plebeian Opinion
People of Rome, I am a Plebeian and I think we should be treated better. We are common people, but I think we could be treated better and be more helpful. The Patricians get to control the government and we don't even get a say in it. We do all the hard jobs like traders, craftsmen, farmers, and artisans and the Patricians do very little work. They are wealthy and get to own land and we do not. So fellow people, I hope you'll stand with me and fight for us to be treated equally.
July 12, 100 B C.E.- March 15, 44 B.C.E.
Julius Caesar was a Roman general and statesman. He was married to Calpurnia at the time of his death. His children were Augustus, Caesarion, and Julia Caesaris. Caesar turned the Roman Republic into the powerful Roman empire. He was very powerful and successful and helped the Roman Republic. One of his famous sayings- It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.

Arches- New design for buildings
You have probably been wondering about the new arch that we put by the Christian Church. Well, we have just figured out how to use arches in buildings. They look great and are very easy to use. The trick is they are curved. When they are curved they allow structures to pass weight from above, then down to the ground. We will start using them in many of the new buildings and temples/churches. We hope you like them too!

A Letter for Rights
I am a Christian and I feel non-christians are treating us unfairly. I don’t think you should make us eat things on certain days or come around asking us if we are Christian or not and then killing us if we are. I also don’t understand what threats we have given you. We are just trying to spread the word of God. I hope this letter will make a big difference on the world.
Huns Strike again
The Huns have attacked us again; luckily we weren't severely injured. Our strong army pushed them out onto the border. The army is going to be on alert for any other barbaric attacks in the future. If you want extra protection, you can pay 50 talents and army men will guard your home for two weeks. The money that we earn from that will go to our army for more weapons and material. We all want to protect our EMPIRE!!
