Big Idea Question #4 What innovations have the largest impact on the classical societies and what were the impacts?
Rome had 2 innovations that dramatically changed their lives which were aqueducts and using a highly efficient architectural method of using arches. First, aqueducts. These changed and made the Romans lives easier because they could bathe and look at fountains with nice fresh water and not have to worry about it being contaminated because it was the Roman law that you were not allowed to contaminate the water. Next, the architectural method of using arches. This impacted their lives because they got to build one of their best structures, the colosseum. The colosseum was so well built it still stands today. The Romans used it sometimes to flood the colosseum and have mock naval battles in the center of the colosseum with real boats and people. It was also their main entertainment where they had gladiator battles.

Rome is the best civilization. They had religion incorporated into their daily life, amazing architecture, and a lot of art. Romans have a pretty famous religion that was based off of Greek religion. They paid their attributes to their gods and goddesses everyday. The Romans also had beautiful temples for worship. Some of the Roman’s architecture still stands today. For example, the extremely famous Roman Colosseum. Finally, they had beautiful art. Not only did they have paintings, but they also had statues, figurines, and pottery. These are only a few reasons why Rome was the best civilization.
