The Roman Empire was a large empire that existed in Europe for about eight centuries, [source needed] starting several centuries before the birth of Jesus Christ. [source needed] It was centred in the city of Rome, though it encompassed cities like Pompeii and Byzantium and had a presence as far as Cardiff, where a Roman fort was situated.
