Essay Questions on Ancient Rome

Calling all History Teachers.

Here are examples of essay questions that I set on an Ancient History Course that I once taught.

Write an essay with an introduction, three or more body paragraphs and a conclusion on one of the following items below.

It can be argued that Rome’s decline was set in motion by the beginning of the Empire. Discuss this idea in looking at the Period from 27BC to 476AD?

What were the successes and failures of the Roman Republic? Why did it collapse from within?

What parallels existed between the civilizations of China, Greece and Rome? Discuss with reference to Art, Literature, Science and most importantly politics.
