Ancient Rome for Kids

Colosseum, gladiators, Roman numerals & more!

One of the most fascinating topics in world history is Ancient Rome for kids, because the Roman Empire was so powerful and vast.

Ancient Rome began as a small village, possibly built in the 8th century BC, which then grew to become one of the most powerful civilisations in history.

The Romans spoke a form of Latin. They developed their own system of writing numbers, which we call Roman numerals. We still use Roman numerals today on clock faces and when naming monarchs, for example Queen Elizabeth II.

The Romans were excellent engineers and architects who built impressive stadia, temples and statues. They introduced straight, paved roads to many countries, as well as advanced plumbing and heating systems. The Colosseum in Rome is an excellent example of a Roman amphitheatre that has largely withstood earthquakes and over 2000 years of history!
