THE CITY OF ROME

THE RISE AND THE GROWTH OF THE CITY

'Rome, Goddess of the earth and of its people, without a peer or a second', amazed the ancient world. Its astonishing history was the story of the growth of the small collection of village huts of the eighth and seventh centuries B.C into the vast metropolis of the first century A.D onwards, which in some of its aspects was more splendid than anything that had been seen on earth before or has since been seen."

Would you please explain bit "village huts"?

    Even today, one finds villages composed of "huts" in Central America, parts of Mexico, Thailand, Cambodia, etc.
    Then "village huts" are "the huts in a village" so village is composed of them and the villagers live in them.

    Thanks for the explanations.
