We see traces of the Roman empire all around us in modern society. It is present in the way we construct buildings (especially formal buildings which hold some sort of power- often political), the value we place on sports, and the art that we create. We are influenced by the work produced during the Roman empire, but also influenced therefore by the work that influenced the Romans. Roman art was often a reflection of the cultures and societies around and before them. The influence of the Romans is certainly present in contemporary society and culture.
