Latins settled by the Tiber River in west-central Italy on the plain of Latium.
The area of Rome had been inhabited for centuries before Rome's foundation.n. There is evidence of human presence in the area which goes back to 14,000 years ago, that is arou…nd 12,000 BC. Rome was said to have been founded in 753 BC. The founding of Rome does not refer to the building of the city. It refers to the creation the Roman state. Romulus did not build Rome. Romulus unified the peoples who lived on the settlements of the hills which were to become the Seven Hills of Rome under his rule. Collectively, these settlements became Rome.

Yes for some people no for some people
Ancient Rome's location on the Tiber was good because it guarded an easy crossing which gave the Romans access to other parts of Italy. Also, they were safe from pirate attack…s because their seaport was 15 miles away at Ostia. If a band of pirates would be so foolish to come up the Tiber, the Romans would be waiting for them. This security gave trade goods easy, safe access to the city.
because it had so many resources like trees, rivers, animals and ETC.
It is not that people built a city along theTiber. The foundations of the city involved the unification ofseveral independent settlements on what were to become the SevenHills… of Rome. The earliest archaeological finds of settlements inthe area of the city date to some 5-600 years prior to itsfoundation. One of the favourable factors of Rome'slocation was the hills. People liked to live on hills because theywere easier to defend from raids. As for the Tiber, Rome was by itsonly ford of this river. Since the Tiber cut from the ApennineMountains (a range which forms the backbone of the Italianpeninsula) to the east to the coast to the west, this made her themain north-south communication point. The Tiber also provided anavigable route to the sea.
Not very well because the Anglos looked down on Hispanos. Answer I don't think the Hispanics cared one way or the other until the newcomers began to steal their land by t…aking advantage of US laws regarding Mexican Land Grants. It changed the economy since the Hispanics had a farming/ranching system of sharing the land and water rights. It remains an issue for the state economy.
the heartland is a good area in which to settle in because most of Canadians live there. The chain of cities that extend from Windsor, Ontario, to the city of Quebec is the co…untry's most urbanized region. Ontario is a great city in the heartlands that contains industries, education, finance, and culture. I had the same question a couple of weeks ago on a test and this is the correct answer.
Why is good farm land a place where people like to settle For how long have they settled in farming areas?
Good farmland is a good place to settle because you can have all the basic necessities of life that you might not otherwise have like: food, timber, and water from springs or… streams. The first settlers usually settled where farmland was good because they couldn't go to Wal-mart like we can. It doesn't really matter nowadays if farmland is good because well we can go to Wal-mart.

Because Tenochtitlan was built on a lake, they made small pathways to the mainland. This made it hard for invaders to mass attack because they could only move so many people a…cross the bridges at a time. Not only that, but because their city was built on the water, they grew they were able to grow their own food on floating gardens, called Chinampas. This meant that even during a time of siege, they could continue to provide for themselves.
