Abstract

Rome was once a vast empire – one of the greatest and most powerful in history. From its legendary founding in 753 BCE, until its eventual fall in 1453 CE, Roman civilization spanned more than two thousand years. At its peak it is estimated that the population of the Roman Empire numbered more than one third of the world’s population.
