Roman society still bears prominence in modern society through it’s structure, and even names of government, such as senators and republicans. Government buildings are inspired by roman architecture taking a look at the columns and the shape of the buildings. Even modern houses have been inspired by roman architecture, such as those built on plantations in the south. Stadiums are erected all the time to host sporting events which reflect that of the Colosseum, and tickets are given out like the pottery shards which help keep the stadium organized. Roman culture itself has a hand in creating the english language and all latin-based languages we have today. It’s interesting how much of an impact a culture from so long ago has on our society still.
