What are three ways geography influenced Roman History?
As a peninsula with seas on three sides and the Alps on the fourth, Rome was protected from many would-be invaders.
Access to the sea provided Rome with imports and exports from distant lands.
The Alps and the Danube Rivers kept the northern "barbarians" from invading for a long time.
A favorable growing climate helped Italy (the core of the Roman Empire) grow food crops to feed a lot of people.
