Ancient Rome

Romans huge, gigantic wooden horse. The statue was hollow, full of roman soldiers. The Romans put the horse by the entrance of the Trojans boundaries. The Trojans excepted the horse as a gift, so they took it inside. The Romans decided once they got past the gates they would attack the people of Trojan. The Trojan war was known for their poems like the Iliad and Odysseus, both written by a roman named Hoemer around 700 B.C.

Rome and Carthage had three disagreements, so they had three wars. Rome won the three wars, which made them have power over the western Mediterranean at the time. The wars were called The Punic Wars, because Carthage had been found by the Phoenicians. The first Punic war began because Rome didn't want the Carthage and Syracuse to pair up and rule the Strait of Messina. So that's what caused the first Punic war to start. The second war started rivalry between Rome and Spain and Carthage. Then again Rome had won. The third was started when Carthage disagreed with the Roman peace treaty. Then again, the Romans won the war.

At home they would eat grapes, figs, olives, and for the meal they would sometimes have small songbirds, asparagus, and quail eggs

The rag doll is a older doll and made of older fabric. there were two types of common marbles, glass marbles and pottery marbles. The glass marbles could be all different types of colors. They kind of looked like the U.S. marbles we have now. The pottery marbles were made out of pottery. The model Chariot two horses pulling a like wagon.
