Roman Empire

27 BC to AD 476

The Roman Empire was one of the largest and most powerful civilizations in history, lasting from 27 BC to AD 476 in the West and until AD 1453 in the East. It began when Augustus became the first emperor, transforming Rome from a republic into an empire. The Romans are known for their impressive achievements in engineering, law, and government. They built extensive roads, aqueducts, and monumental structures like the Colosseum. The empire spanned three continents, including Europe, Asia, and Africa, and influenced many aspects of Western culture and society that continue to this day..
