aliyyah bradford's insight:

Ancient Rome made an empire throughout the borders of Egypt, Syria, Greece, Macedonia, and Palestine. Romans did more than just conquer these countries. The Romans also unified a group of people with diverse ways of life. Following the principle of assimilation, these countries embraced the Roman culture and integrated its elements into their own.

aliyyah bradford's insight:
Roman citizens, known as plebeians, originally had far less say in government than did patricians—aristocrats who dominated the Roman Senate and controlled a special assembly that elected two consuls annually to rule Rome for the year.

Rome had fact been depopulation for decades. They had big government therefore they had big debt and had vast spending program to fiance. The big government was to increase wealth, but it already exist.  

David Arrieta's curator insight, May 17, 2014 12:39 AM

In this article it explains that just how Rome wasn't built in a day it didn't collapse in one either. It explains the different methods that ultimately brought this great civilization to its demise. Some of the reasons were the mass amount of people, corrupt social hierarchy.

aliyyah bradford's insight:

The date for the end of Roman rule in the Rhineland is often placed around AD 406, with Germanic tribes such as the Vandals, Alans, Suevi and smaller groups crossing the Rhine in force near Mainz and penetrating deep into Gaul. The concentration of gold hoards from this period seems especially connected to the frantic attempts of Emperor Constantine III to maintain a grip on the border defense in the lower Rhine region. However, in hindsight, the end of the Roman Empire was, by this time, a forgone conclusion.

Inflation and the Fall of the Roman Empire

Inflation and the Fall of the Roman Empire | the fall of the roman empire | Scoop.it
By the time of Trajan in 117 AD, the denarius was only about 85 percent silver, down from Augustus's 95 percent. By the age of Marcus Aurelius, in 180, it was down to about 75 percent silver.
aliyyah bradford's insight:

In the 3rd century of rome all sorts of people were trying to escape the increased taxes that the military needed. The army had grown from 250,000 to somewhat over 600,000. The army itself had doubled in size in the course of this inflationary spiral, that contributed greatly to the inflation.

Manners of the Roman Senate and People - Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire Chapter 31 Part 2 - | the fall of the roman empire | Scoop.it
The elite Romans of the late empire were a privileged group whose wealth was astonishing. Meanwhile the masses lived off of handouts.
aliyyah bradford's insight:

The Roman Republic had conquered the world on the backs of large numbers of independent but public spirited and not very rich farmers. When the Romans got into Persia and Mesopotamia they found systems of farming that they didn’t understand and couldn’t work out how to make viable. So the latifundia system put a brake on the expansion of the empire. It was also a system which needed and encouraged stability. There was little incentive to come up with technical innovations.

The Team found the Roman water contained 100 times as much lead in the springs, but it wasn't enough to put the people at risk. Pipes were the only source of lead, It was used for cooking pots and storing food. The argument that roman civilization had lead killing was 30 years after.
