Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, January 28, 2014 11:36 PM

I actually thought that Egypt was the location of the earliest civilization. Egypt is known as the land of the hebrews' slavery and Menelaus' exile after the long Trojan War. Egypt is a country that contains so much history and architecture to be told.

Xochithl Barragan's curator insight, May 16, 2014 1:17 PM

This is a blog that talks about the Egyptian Old Kingdom's history. They mention that many thought Egypt was the place where the first civilizations were created.

This Is How Empires Collapse | Zero Hedge

Rome wasn't built in a day. Nor did it collapse in a day. You could have been living during what is now the commonly recognized period of it's decline, and if you picked the right 50 year span, you'd think things were still going just peachy.
Lottiefultz's insight:

According to this article many empires/civilizations collapsed due to the corruption of an individual who holds the most power in that civilization or empire. and the corruptness ends up spreading basically saying civilization have failed due to weak or corrupt governments.

Why did the Roman Empire collapse

A brief and simple explanation for the collapse of the Roman empire meant for my 8th grade students. 1. No rule of succession, 2. civil wars, 3. German tribes.
Lottiefultz's insight:

The roman empire collapsed because they could not find a new ruler after the death of their old ruler they had no plan for who would become the next ruler. The second reason it fell is because  towards the end of the empire Rome was troubled with constant civil wars due to the fact of their lack of a plan for rulers, and the German tribes, ( the vandals, goths, franks etc.)  invaded the Roman empire.
