The Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire Timeline

The Roman Empire and Byzantine Empire Timeline

The events I included were the most important events in Roman and Byzantine History. The first was the start of the Roman Empire. Next, I added significant events like Rome becoming a republic, Julius Ceasar being assassinated, and the fall of the Roman Empire. Then, there are events like the start of the Byzantine Empire and the Bubonic Plague. I thought they were really important to Roman and Byzantine history.

Religion in the Byzantine Empire

Religion was the basis for their empire. Christianity was a part of daily life; people went to church everyday. There were disputes with the churches in the empire, and they eventually got along with each other.

Roman Contributions in the Western Addition

Three Roman contributions I found in the Western Addition of San Francisco are roads, sewers, and mosaics. Roads are everywhere because cars drive on them, sewers are on almost every corner, and mosaics can be found on the KIPP SF Bay walls.
