Boundaries of the Empire and
Governed Justly at Home.
The Roman emperor, Trajan, whose
full name was Marcus Ulplus Tra
Janus, was born about the year 56

a military career and gained diatinc

JNerva, whom be succeeded on the
imperial throne in the year 1)8. The
greater part of his time as emperor
was spent In the field commanding
bis troops. Ills first campaign was
carried on beyond the Danube against
the Iaelans, whom he conquered after
a long struggle. Id the conquered
country he planted a Itoman colony,

health was broken and while on the
Journey he died at gelinus In Oil Ida,

Internal Improvement of the empire.
He beautified Home; he constructed
canals, great military roads, and har
bors, and built up towns. Luw was
enforced and Justice fairly administered.

The Middle Ages.
The Middle ages was a period of
about a thousand years in the history
of Europe, beginning with the fall of
the Roman empire in 476 A. D., and
ending with the fall of the eastern
itoman empire in 1543 A. D. The
Middle ages include the years between
the close of the classic times and the
dawn of the modern era, and consti
tuted the epech of feudalism, chivalrj
and the Crusades. According to Hal
lam, the Middle ages comprise about
1,000 years, from the invasion of
France by Clovis in 476 to that of Na
ples by Charles VIII in 1494, From
the close of the Middle ages came the
invention of printing, the discovery of
America and the revival of learning in
the Fifteenth century.
