The Arts of the Roman Empire As we know, Romans took the practical side of architecture, 1. They built 50,000 miles of roads some still in use today! 2. They needed to house and entertain their citizens so they built: tenements, meeting halls, baths, bridges, tunnels and amphitheaters The arch improved the Greek's post and lintel architecture and brought in 18 aqueducts which brought in forty millions of water galleons per day Roman architecture and engineering were considered one. Ten Books on Architecture is the most influential of its kind. They felt the function of the building determined its design. The sheer magnitude of the Circus Maximus seated 200,000 people was a spectacular amphitheater. The Coliseum covered 6 acres and sat 50,000. Rome's population in 70 C.E. was almost one million and many of them were poor. They got relief from free government wheat and entertainment (chariot races, mock sea battles, gladiatorial contests and brutal hand sports )

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
