The Roman Colosseum The History Of The Roman Colosseum There were hidden elevators and trap doors so men or animals would appear from beneath. The seats of the Colosseum were divided by wealth and average. The people in the back were the poorest ones of them all they would seat on belchers. Right under them were the average people. They had far seats from the arena. And under them were the wealthy people of Rome. They had one of the best seats of anyone else. But under them were the best seats of the arena and there're reserved for the officers of Rome. But there was a special spot for the emperors and his relatives. It was a little box that gave them shade and could been seen from all around the Colosseum. The gladiators were a major part of the Roman Colosseum. The gladiators attracted many people across the Roman Empire. Over 50,000 people came to watch the gladiators fight tell the death. The gladiators themselves knew that they had to fight tell the death. But if they fought well enough the emperor would show mercy by sparing their lives. The gladiators were first introduced to Rome in 294 B.C. When the sons of Junius Brrutes wanted to show respect to their dad's funeral. They showed three pairs of gladiators fight. But later on they re-preformed it for religion. The Roman people loved to see these fights and later on they were fought in the Colosseum. The Colosseum held fights like gladiators vs. gladiators, gladiators vs. animals, naval battles, chiaret races, and much more. The gladiators were many different types of people. There were slaves that were bought at auctions. They're poor people that were recruited, and prisoners of war. The prisoners of wars had to use their own weapons. There were also men that had volunteered. The men that volunteered were in search of glory and to become famous. If you survived a match you would get women, gifts, and would be an idol. The officers would get the girls out of the arena because girls would try to get on the gladiator.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN In the 9th century Slovenians felt unhappy because they didn't have a state. So, the best people just gathered and established a state.
The first towns were Novgorod (now in Russia) and Kiev (now in Ukraine). Historians have called that first state Kievskaya Rus' , because soon Kiev had became the most powerful town. CHRISTIANITY. Slovenians were very aggressive and for centuries they'd fought with Visantiya (East Roman Empire) and from time to time set their capital to Konstantinopl (Istambul now). One of the princes even took Bulgaria and Romania away from the Roman Empire and set up a new state. The Empire was frightened and sent priests to Slovenians. Roman priests started to install Christianity in Kievskaya Rus'.

Section 2: Building a New Roman Empire
Steven Muhlberger The emperor Diocletian's reign (284-305) marks a new start for the Roman Empire. He began, however, as a typical usurper of the late third century. A Dalmatian soldier from an obscure background, he rose through the ranks until the mysterious death of the Emperor Numerian on the way back from a Persian expedition gave him an opportunity to seize supreme power. According to the historian Eutropius, Diocletian's first act was to swear in front of an assembly of the soldiers that Numerian had not died from any plot of his. Then, because the praetorian prefect Aper, who had been intriguing against Numerian, was standing there next to him, Diocletian with his own hand struck Aper down in sight of the whole army Such ruthlessness in imperial circles was not rare, before or after Diocletian. What makes Diocletian important was that he was able to turn his control of Numerian's army into a long-lasting dominance of the entire empire. ILLUSTRATION: Two portraits of Diocletian Diocletian's reign, however, was not a time of peace. Central authority did not come naturally to the large area imperialists thought of as Roman territory. It had to be enforced. Rival emperors had to be destroyed; armies had to be brought under the control of the Tetrarchy, and rebuilt; local leaders had to be brought into submission; barbarians had to be punished for their attacks on Rome, and Persian aggression repulsed. There were very few years when the Tetrarchs were not at war, either within or without the notional boundaries of empire.

Caesar Augustus Rules. Brutus and the other conspirators expected that the people would applaud what they had done. But the Romans did not do so. When Caesar was buried, his friend Mark Antony made a powerful speech, telling what a great man Caesar was and how much he had done for the people. As they listened to his words the mob became so angry that they threatened the lives of Brutus and his supporters, and drove them from the city. Mark Antony and the young nephew of Caesar then took the lead. They followed the conspirators with an army, defeated and slew them in a battle in Greece, and thus became rulers of the Roman world. It was agreed that Antony should rule all the eastern part and Caesar's nephew, the western. They could not live long in peace, however, but soon fought each other, just as Caesar and Pompey had done before them. Mark Antony lost his life, and then young Caesar was supreme. Caesar Augustus, as he was called, was a tall, fine looking man who seemed born to be a ruler. He proved both wise and clever. Instead of taking all the state of a king, Augustus allowed the Romans to have their assemblies and play at electing consuls just as in the old days, but he himself took the title of emperor and really had all the power. From this time on Rome always had an emperor at its head. The Roman Republic became the Roman Empire. (31 B.C.) The Roman Empire started well. Augustus was firm but wise. Though he had risen by violence he did not like war, and kept the empire peaceful. He thought it best to beautify and improve Rome by new squares and buildings, and to encourage great writers and artists. So at the end of his rejgn he justly boasted that "he found Rome a city of brick and left it a city of marble."

Famous Barbarians
Attila (Atli)
One of the most feared and notorious barbarians of all time, Attila, was not a Germanic or Celtic barbarian, but Hunnish. Believed to be of distant Mongol stock, he ravaged much of the European continent during the 5th century C.E. Apparently Attila was as great a menace to the Teutonic tribespeople as he was to the Romans; he and his forces were finally defeated by both Germans and Romans working together (!) in 451 C.E. Attila supposedly died soon after. The rumors of his cannibalistic practices are not unfounded; he is supposed to have eaten two of his sons, even. He actually does make a cameo appearance in the Volsung saga, as Gutrune's second husband after Sigurd's death. An excellent Attila site: Diether Etzel's Attila the Hun and Barbarians page. This site also has some great information on the Swabian barbarians. There is also a discorse on Priscus at the Court of Attila.

Unit 4: Late Antiquity
/ Transformation of Empire A Reaction to Diocletian's Reforms, ca. 315 The Tetrarchs Finding the third-century Empire too vast and beset with turmoil to rule alone, Diocletian, in one of his major reforms, deicided not to rule alone. He created the tetrarchy, a system of four emperors, two senior Augusti and their subordinates and eventual successors, the Caesares . Each Augustus had responsibility for one half the Empire, Diocletian choosing the wealthier east. The Augusti would choose their Caesares on the basis of personal ability, not family connection. Diocletian hoped to solve the succession struggles that had plagued the Empire in this fashion. It worked briefly, but after Diocletian died the relatives of the retired Augusti made war on their appointed successors, plunging the Empire into conflict. A more lasting legacy was division and multiple emperors ruling simultaneously, sometimes in conflict and sometimes not. This sculpture shows the tetrachs in idealized form. Constantine the Great Constantine considered himself “the restorer of the Roman Empire” since he unified it following the collapse of Diocletian’s tertarchy. The militarization of the Empire continued under him as he expanded the use of mobile field armies staffed primarily by barbarians. His numerous treaties with German tribes initiated a policy of conciliation and alliance which eventually led to the formation of barbarian kingdoms within the Western Empire. The reforms of Diocletian and Constantine created a more stable empire, but one which was very distinct from its predecessor.

1000 BCE
: Rome - Indo-European immigrants slowly inhabit Italy by way of the Alps. They bring the horse, the wheeled cart, and artistic knowledge of bronze work to the Italian peninsula. Two different groups, the Greeks and the Etruscans, occupy different regions of the peninsula during the eighth century. 753 BCE : Rome - Archeological research indicates that the founders of Rome itself are Italic people who occupy the area south of the Tiber River. By the sixth century BCE, Rome will have become the dominant power of most of its surrounding area. Their conservative government consists of a kingship, resembling the traditional values of the patriarchal family; an assembly, composed of male citizens of military age; and a Senate, comprised of elders who serve as the heads of different community sects. 600 BCE : Rome - The Etruscans, believed to be natives of Asia Minor, establish cities stretching from northern to central Italy. Their major contributions to the Romans are the arch and the vault, gladiatorial combat for entertainment and the study of animals to predict future events. The Greeks establish city-states along the southern coast of Italy and the island of Sicily. Their contributions to the Romans are the basis of the Roman alphabet, many religious concepts and artistic talent as well as mythology.

- (Read p. 133-138, Spielvogel) In 31 B.C. the civil wars which had plagued Rome for a century finally came to an end. Octavian, the grandnephew and adopted son of Caesar, defeated his former ally Mark Antony at the Battle of Actium and gained supremacy in the Roman world. During his reign which lasted until his death in 14 A.D., Octavian, who is better known by the title Augustus, consolidated his political power and brought stability and strength to the Roman world. As the master of the Roman world, Augustus did the following things. 1. Increased the Authority and Power of the Government (He gave the government more power over the economy and the military)
2. More Political Power for an Individual Ruler (the Emperor) (Although he maintained a republican system of government on the surface, in reality Augustus became the absolute master of the Roman world. The Senate granted him a number of different titles and powers which gave him complete political and military authority. Most people in the Roman world liked this because Augustus used this power to restore stability)
3. Reforms of the Army (He restructured the Roman legions and required members to be citizens, he put generals under state authority again, he created the Praetorian guard, and he used a large number of auxiliary forces made up on non-citizens)

1000 BC Warlike tribes began to migrate from northern Europe into what is now Germany. 100 BC The Tribes moved south to the northern frontiers of the Roman Empire . The Romans called the tribes Germani. They called the land of the tribes Germania. 9 AD The Romans tried to conquer the tribes. During a battle at the Teutoburg Forest, the Germanic warriors crushed the Romans . As a result the Romans built a wall between the Rhine and Danube Rivers to protect their land. Roman power began to decline. Germanic tribes went south and defeated much of the Roman Empire . The kingdom of the Franks became the most important of the tribes. Clovis, king of the Franks, defeated the Roman governor of Gaul (now mainly France ). Clovis continued to defeat other Germanic tribes and extended his kingdom into what is now western Germany. Most peasant farmers had become serfs. Charlemagne became ruler of the Franks. He established his capital in Aachen. He established his kingdom east to the Elbe River. Charlemagne was crowned the emperor of the Romans by Pope Leo III.

patroni cliens . That protection might take the form of financial assistance, the provision of food, or legal help. Traditionally, any freed slaves became the cliens of their former owner.
In return, the patroni received respect and political favors. During the Empire cliens were required to offer daily greetings to their patroni , and the number of these salutatores , or greeters, were noted in determining someone's social status. Roman generals also served as patroni for the peoples they conquered, and various Roman provinces or cities would often seek out an influential Senator to act as patroni and oversee their interests in Rome.
Clothing laws helped to distinguish the classes. For example, only the Emperor was allowed to wear a toga which was entirely purple. Senators were allowed to wear a white toga with the latus clavus clavus augustus (narrow purple stripe).
