By now you should have learnt something about Roman government history and that is a good thing because some of the laws, actions, attitudes and behaviours we share today go back to this time. Have you enjoyed the exercise?
So what have you learnt?
Who was more important in changing Roman government from a Republic to an Empire? Was it Julius Caesar or Augustus Caesar or was it the Roman people themselves because they let these changes occur?
How important was control of territory outside Rome and Italy itself to give people power? Look at Marc Antony and Cleopatra, even Crassus.
Did money equal power? Does it today?
What legacy did the Romans leave for us and for the future?
