Set Description and Contents:
From the beginning, Rome dedicated its resources to expanding its holdings. By 106 CE that empire spanned all of Europe west of the Rhone and Danube Rivers, and included Romania south the the Mediterranean, the Middle East as far as the Caspian Sea, Egypt and North Africa east of the Strait of Gibraltar.
Romans were less concerned with innovation than with adopting and adapting earlier Greek and Etruscan precedents. The Romans eventually forged a style that favored realism, with idealization reserved for rulers and their families. Roman city engineering was sophisticated. Cities enjoyed running water, indoor toilets, sewers, paved streets, and hot and cold public baths. As Rome's power spread over Europe, its building programs extended to the conquered areas.
