In this episode of Empire Builders we explore ten sites that defined the Roman Empire.
The Roman Empire was the most powerful economic, cultural, political and military force in the world of its time and became one of the largest empires in world history.
At its height under Emperor Trajan, it covered 5 million square kilometres, holding sway over an estimated 70 million people, at that time 21% of the world’s entire population, controlling large territorial holdings around the Mediterranean Sea in Europe, North Africa and The Middle East.
For 500 years the city of Rome was the largest city in the world. The longevity and vast extent of the empire, ruled for its entirety from Rome, ensured the lasting influence of Latin and Greek language, culture, religion, inventions, architecture, philosophy, law and forms of government on the empire’s descendants.
