There is no one reason why Rome fell.  Rather a combination of bad leadership, bad economy, and a series of invasions led to the collapse of the Western Roman Empire. The Eastern Empire carried on for many more centuries.

It might sound strange but we can learn a lot from a culture from the burial practices that they have.  From this grave we know that the family was wealthy and what religion they practiced.  We can also learn what is important to a culutre.

For many years people considered the Renaissance to be the rebirth of learning.  It is not that learning didn't occur during the Middle Ages but people tended to be more isolated.  The feudal system began breaking down during plague outbreaks with survivors moving to cities for work.  When this happened new technologies and ideas began to spread and there was a massive surge in work in the arts and sciences.

In ancient Rome, purple was the color of royalty, a designator of status. And while purple is flashy and pretty, it was more important at the time that purple was expensive.

The color purple connotes royalty and that comes from the trouble and expense that went into creating it.  The Phoenicians, a group lived lived prior to the Romans, actually created the method of creating it but the Roman Empire was much larger and influencial.

Rome had both technological and cultural innovations that made life for the citizens easier.  We would recognize apartments and shopping malls and would be amazed that they had running water and central heat.  This doesn't mean that it is a safe time to live in, by modern standards it was harsh.

So what's in a name.  For a long time the time period between the fall of Rome and the Renaissance was referred to as the Dark Ages.  The thinking was no learning took place in this time.  Then this same period became known as the Middle Ages.  That would mean that it is a time period but not a lot of important things happened.  Now scholars refer to the time as the Medieval Time Period.  This new name reflects that there was important activities happening, for example cathedral building and laws.  Most use the three names interchangeably.

With current technologies we can learn where people lived and what type of activities they did while they were alive.  But what is more exciting than the bodies are the large number of grave goods, or things, buried with the bodies.  We will be able to see what people valued and get a better understanding of their daily lives.

it's interesting to think that in ancient times only the rich could have access to toilets. 

Chase Lee's curator insight, March 8, 2014 2:41 AM

Good for them. If that is what they were used for, then good for them. I am a fan of plumbing. When i look at it that's not really what i see. it looks more artistic than practical.

Patrick Kwong's curator insight, March 9, 2014 4:59 AM

The plumbing system in Rome is an extraordinary feature among the many architecture such as aqueducts and roads. The Romans had a “perfected” version of the ancient pipeline, as public toilets and private homes were connected to a main drainage system, which is comparable to our extremely vast pipeline throughout America. It’s impressive that these Romans were so ahead of their time, but unfortunate that only the higher class could be allowed to live …more hygienically, as the poor  would use urine to launder clothes.
