Description:
A collection of locations significant in the history of ancient Rome.
Expanded Description:
Ancient Rome was a civilization that grew from a humble city-state founded on the Italian Peninsula circa the 9th century BC to a massive empire straddling the Mediterranean. In its twelve-century existence, the Roman civilization shifted from a monarchy to an oligarchic republic to a vast empire. It came to dominate Western Europe and the entire area surrounding the Mediterranean Sea through conquest and assimilation. Nonetheless, a number of factors led to the eventual decline of the Roman Empire. The western half of the empire, including Hispania, Gaul, and Italy, eventually broke into independent kingdoms in the 5th century; the eastern empire, governed from Constantinople, is usually referred to as the Byzantine Empire after 476, the traditional date for the "fall of Rome" and for the subsequent onset of the Early Middle Ages, also known as the Dark Ages.

Locations in this category can identify actual physical remains/ruins of ancient Roman civilization, "in-situ" reconstructions, locations of important events or where evidence has been completely obliterated over time, or collections/pieces of archeological significance, for example in museums. Modern facsimilies of ancient Rome are excluded. The original event or manifestation/object must have occured or come into existance during the period covering the 9th century B.C. to the abdication of Romulus Augustus in 476 A.D.. Events occuring or manifestations constructed after 364 must exclusively focus on the Western Empire. The Byzantine Empire is excluded from this category.
