The Legacy of the Romans - The Rise of The Roman Empire: Episode 10

March 16th, 2021


Welcome to The Rise of The Roman Empire podcast series by Cambridge For Kids. This tenth episode looks at The Legacy of the Romans. The ancient Romans have made a dramatic impact on the modern world. Having already acquired blueprints from the ancient Greeks by force, they added strength and conquest to a Greek worldview. The result was advancements in art, architecture, technology, literature, language, religion, and of course warfare. In this episode, you will learn about their influence on our world today, notably the United States Constitution. The fall of the Empire ushering in the Dark Ages. The Colosseum. And how a new religion called Christianity would change the Roman world forever.

Written and Narrated by Cambridge University Archaeologist: Matthew John Brooks
