British and Roman empires
This essay is about the impact of empires of the past on the modern world. What innovations or practices did they give us. For example, the Romans built roads and used plumbing. They also spoke Latin which is the foundation for many modern European languages. Similarly, the British empire spread the English language and Christianity across the globe in areas such as Africa and the Americas. They also built roads and cities and brought western ideas and culture. One of the most influential powers in the world today was formed by the British colonists crossing the Atlantic and starting completely from scratch. These examples of ideas influences can all be seen in the modern world today and helped to shape modern society.
