In this article it lists the many reasons why the Roman Empire fell, giving a brief description as to how each condition brought the empire to its demise; for example when the Roman people began to adopt christianity, or when their economy fell to shambles. The collapse of this great empire was not a sudden collapse, it was very gradual and had been happening for many years prior. 

vanessa ortiz's curator insight, April 19, 2014 10:01 PM

This article suggests a multitude of reasons why the Roman Empire fell.  I believe that it could be possible for there to be more then one reason why the empire fell.

In this article it gives you a brief description of the Mycenaean Empire and how they came into existence and how they fell as well. The civilization peaked from 1650 to 1200 and then went into the dark age. The article also mentions that the setting of the Odyssey and the Iliad could possibly be in Mycenae.

In this article the author suggests that the fall of the Romans began internally when the kingdom became larger and larger.  This could be true because with power comes consequences.  I am almost positive that the people of the kingdom did not enjoy being controlled.

I enjoyed reading this article because it suggests a 15 reasons why the Roman Em[pre fell which I believe to be more realistic because there is never one single reason why.  There is always so,meting that lead to something that lead to something.

Mario Murakami's curator insight, April 11, 2014 8:51 PM

Some say that the fall of the Roman Empire was due to Christianity. Christianity made people pacifists which  in turn caused the Roman citizens not to fight the Barbarians that overthrew the Empire. Also, money that was spent on churches could have been spent on something else more beneficial for the state.

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 12, 2014 2:49 AM

As stated in the article there were many reasons as to why the Roman Empire fell. Reasons that you would assume to be positive actually ruined everything for Rome. The mentality of the people had changed when they were introduced to christianity, the constant fighting for territory between neighboring cities, and dirty politicians.

David Arrieta's curator insight, April 18, 2014 4:54 PM

In this article it gives in depth reasons why the Roman Empire collapsed. From something specific such as the morality of the city state/cleanliness, to something more broad such as the economy, politics, and military spending.
